A Mission with World Reach
Worldwide fuel consumption continues to increase rapidly. At the same time, efforts to decarbonize our environment are growing and sustainability is now a priority for many corporations, government agencies and consumers around the globe.
REG enables a cleaner world.
Renewable Energy Group, Inc., (REG) is a leading provider of cleaner, lower carbon intensity products and services. REG is one of the world’s largest producers of advanced biofuel, a developer of renewable chemicals and an international producer of biomass-based diesel.
Biofuels play a significant role in the global decarbonization effort. Rather than extracting sequestered carbon from the earth in the form of crude oil, REG creates valuable advanced biofuel from waste and byproducts that already exist above ground. This process directly supports agriculture and food security, while delivering cleaner, lower carbon intensity products and services. In addition, biofuels are proven to reduce emissions of carbon monoxide, particulate matter, unburned hydrocarbons and sulfates compared to petroleum diesel fuels.
REG International Biorefineries
REG utilizes an expansive procurement, distribution and logistics network to convert natural fats, oils, greases and sugars into lower carbon intensity products.
With 14 active biorefineries, a feedstock recovery plant, research and development capabilities, and a diverse and growing intellectual property portfolio, REG is committed to being a global long-term leader in bio-based fuel and chemicals.
The REG Portfolio of Products
The fuel industry is changing — and REG is at the forefront of it all. Our diverse product offering and wealth of knowledge can help you run a successful operation and meet decarbonization and sustainability goals with renewable products.
REG biodiesel helps boost profits, performance and efficiency while achieving emissions goals.
- Reduces lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90%.
- Meets or exceeds the stringent ASTM D6751 quality standard.
- Meets or exceeds European biofuel specification EN 14214.
REG Distilled Biodiesel
Distillation results in the purest, most consistent form of biodiesel with advanced cold-flow properties.
- Eliminates the need to switch to a lower Cloud Point biodiesel during winter months.
- Easily blends with petroleum as it contains fewer minor components.
REG Renewable Hydrocarbon Diesel (RHD)
This advanced biofuel reduces greenhouse gas emissions while meeting the EN 15940 specification in Europe and ASTM D975 specification for petroleum diesel.
- Included in the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) of 1992 standards to meet a portion of the annual Alternative Fuel Vehicle acquisition requirements.
- Meets the EPA’s Clean Air Health Effects testing requirements.
REG offers traditional fuels like ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) and heating oil — making it easy for customers to meet their fuel demands from one convenient fuel supplier.
Biodiesel Blended Fuel
REG offers biodiesel blended fuels from B2 to B20 from a growing network of terminals.
REG Bio Heating Oil
REG Bio Heating Oil — which contains up to 20 percent biodiesel — is a reliable, superior-quality fuel that offers a clean, efficient alternative to traditional heating oil.
An advanced purification process ensures customers receive high-quality and consistent glycerin that meets exact specifications.
Other REG renewable products:
- Bio-Residual Oil
- Renewable LPG
- Renewable Naphtha
- Potassium Sulfate
REG Advantage: Feedstock Flexibility
REG has the expertise and technology needed to use diverse feedstocks — including used cooking oil, residues and animal fats* — to create lower carbon intensity, high-quality biodiesel. Benefits of feedstock flexibility include:
More predictable pricing and availability
Feedstock flexibility frees REG from some of the instability of commodity markets — which provides economic and supply chain advantages to customers.
Fully continuous, cost-effective production process
REG refineries can switch from one feedstock to another with almost no production downtime.
Each feedstock brings different performance characteristics to the end product — from higher lubricity to longer shelf life to increased Cetane. Feedstock flexibility captures the best properties of different feedstocks.*
Lower carbon intensity
This can be achieved through the increased use of inedible feedstocks to produce biodiesel. Governments around the globe are encouraging the use of biofuels that have lower carbon intensity scores through various regulatory means.
Quality control and assurance
REG products meet or exceed European and American fuel quality standards regardless of the feedstock used. All REG biorefineries also participate in additional quality control standards for storage, sampling, testing, blending, shipping, distribution and fuel management practices. Our European biorefineries are ISCC certified.
