Fueled by Leadership Since the Beginning
The fuel industry is changing, and REG is at the forefront of it all. With more than 100 years of combined biodiesel experience, our management team has evolved the company from a single biodiesel production facility in 1996 into a nationally recognized, fully integrated, biomass-based fuel and renewable chemicals company. Our wealth of knowledge can help you run a successful operation and meet sustainability goals with renewable products.
Fueled by Expertise
At REG, leading the renewable fuels and chemicals industry means leading in every aspect of the business.
Our experts stay up to the minute on state and federal regulations, incentives, RIN trading and other important policy issues. We know current tax codes and credits inside and out, and we offer top-rate technical support when and where you need it. All the while, we constantly develop new and innovative ways to change the world with renewable fuels.
After more than 20 years leading the industry and more than a billion gallons sold, we know biodiesel better than anybody.
With our vast knowledge, we ensure our customers get the most benefits possible from using biodiesel by staying up to the minute on state and federal regulations, incentives and other important policy issues.
Where clean energy meets smart business.
The wide range of benefits that come with REG-9000 Biodiesel stretch far beyond sustainability. You can also use REG-9000 Biodiesel to boost profits, performance and efficiency as you achieve emissions goals.
- Economic advantages, such as tax incentives and RIN trading.
- Enhanced energy security and diversity.
- Increased lubricity to keep engines cooler, running quieter and operating longer.
- Reduced life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions by 57 to 86%.
- The most advanced quality control measures in the industry, with all products meeting or exceeding the stringent ASTM D6751 quality standard.
- National supply and logistics for convenient, on-demand biodiesel delivery, including a dedicated rail car fleet and nationwide truck fleet partnership.
- Produced at BQ-9000® accredited biorefineries, ensuring quality with every batch.
REG-9000 Distilled Biodiesel
The clear solution for winter performance.
We know cloud point is important when it comes to determining winter performance — but we also know it isn’t everything. Distilled biodiesel is the purist type of biodiesel. With advanced cold-flow properties, it is a superior choice for reliable performance even in colder temperatures.
- Eliminates the need to switch to a lower cloud point biodiesel during winter months.
- Is easy to blend with petroleum, since there are fewer minor components.
- Reduces potential for filter plugging due to reduced minor components. Plus, non-vegetable oil feedstocks increase cetane numbers for better engine performance.
Cold Soak Filter Blocking Tendency (CSFBT)
- Measures filter pressure increase for blended fuels.
- This test predicts the impact of minor components — including steryl glucosides — that can solidify in biodiesel blends in cold conditions.
- The lower the CSFBT score, the better the cold weather performance.
Examples of CSFBT Scores:
- Lowest Possible Score: 1.0
- REG-9000: <1.4
- Undistilled Low-cloud Biodiesel: 1.6-3.0
REG Renewable Diesel (RD)
A smart fuel alternative.
This advanced biofuel reduces greenhouse gas emissions while meeting the ASTM D975 specification for petroleum diesel. It can be added to the existing pipeline system — making it easy to incorporate into the diesel stream.
- Qualifies for several state and federal biofuel tax incentives.
- Just like petroleum diesel, it’s compatible with any diesel engine without modifications.
- Blends well with biodiesel and petroleum diesel.
- Allows for easier starting, smoother running engines and reliable operation due to increased cetane.
- 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.
Fueled by Performance
The benefits of switching to alternative fuel.
We understand you demand proven performance and will not sacrifice quality for sustainability. With biodiesel and renewable hydrocarbon diesel, that’s not a concern. Not only do they meet stringent ASTM specifications, but they also deliver impressive operational benefits.
- Improved lubricity — Biodiesel can add fuel lubricity to diesel fuels at blend levels as low as 1 percent.1 This is especially helpful because ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) has led to less lubricity in petroleum diesel, and modern diesel engines rely on fuel to help the lubricating process.
- High combustion quality — Biodiesel raises the cetane number of the fuel, speeding up combustion. Plus, the government says hydrocarbon diesel’s high combustion quality results in similar or better vehicle performance compared with conventional diesel.2
Fueled by sustainability
Biodiesel fuels are renewable and sustainable, making fleets better for the environment. Plus, biodiesel helps fleets achieve compliance as more state and federal mandates are put in place.
B100: 75% reduction in CO2 emissions, compared to petroleum diesel.1
B20: 15% reduction in CO2 emissions, compared to petroleum diesel.1
RD: Up to 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, compared to petroleum diesel.3
