Cleaner Fuels For a Cleaner World

For more than 20 years, Renewable Energy Group has pushed clean fuels forward from niche products to economically viable fuel alternatives. From REG-9000 Biodiesel and renewable diesel to REG Ultra Clean™ Diesel and more — REG offers cleaner fuels that help our customers support both the environment and their business. 

Here are some of the ways REG fuels are making a difference compared with petroleum diesel:

REG 9000 Biodiesel - Up to 86% reduction in greenhouse gases
REG Ultra Clean™ Diesel - 40% reduction in particulate matter emissions2
REG Renewable Diesel - 15% reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions2

A Simple, Cost-Effective Transition

Our cleaner fuels are good for the environment — and they're easy for customers to incorporate into existing infrastructure. See how running on biodiesel compares with the cost of adding compressed natural gas infrastructure in this infographic.

Future of the Fuel Landscape

Where are the fuel and transportation industries heading over the next 10 years, 20 years — how about 30 years? That may seem like a long way out, but in this ever-changing landscape, forward-thinking organizations are already looking that far ahead.

What they’re finding is that liquid fuels will continue to dominate in the coming decades. In 2050, for example, liquid fuels will account for over 92 percent of the transportation sector's fuel consumption.3

At the same time, sustainability is taking center stage for everyone from government officials to fuel producers to fleet managers to drivers. Cleaner fuels like biodiesel and renewable diesel are leading the way. They are liquid fuels that are drop-in replacements to petroleum diesel, and they offer significantly lower emissions.

Cleaner fuels are the future —  and the future is here now.
