Reduce emissions without sacrificing performance.
REG Renewable Diesel (RD) is an advanced biofuel that reduces greenhouse emissions while meeting the same ASTM-D975 specification as petroleum diesel. It can be added to the existing pipeline system, making it easy to incorporate into the diesel stream.
- Renewable Diesel is 100 percent hydrocarbon — like petroleum diesel.
- Renewable Diesel can be blended with biodiesel and petroleum diesel.
- Blends can be used in any diesel engine without modifications.
- RD aids self-ignition of fuel and allows for easier starting, smoother running engines
andreliable operation because of increased cetane
- Renewable Diesel is included in the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPAct) standards to meet a portion of the annual alternative fuel vehicle acquisition requirements.
- It has been tested by the EPA and passes their Clean Air Health Effects testing requirements.
- RD qualifies for various state biofuel tax incentives.
