REG Europe

Protecting the environment and improving air quality are global issues — and Renewable Energy Group is taking a global approach. We started in America, and now we have a footprint in Europe and are making a difference on both continents.

Serving the World’s Largest Biodiesel Market

In Europe, an effort known as the Circularity is underway to transform the economy into a more sustainable one. Biodiesel can play a big role in this. In fact, the European Union is the world’s largest producer and consumer of biodiesel.* Biodiesel in general has significantly lower emissions than petroleum diesel, but we go a step further at our European production facilities by utilizing used cooking oil as a primary feedstock. Used cooking oil offers even greater greenhouse gas reductions than other feedstocks. 

REG Europe headquarters is located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We have two production facilities in Germany: REG Oeding and REG Emden biodiesel plants. Our biodiesel plants:

  • Are ISCC/RED certified ensuring transparency and compliance with European and international standards
  • Meet EN 14214 specifications and test methods for fatty acid methyl esters (FAME), which is another name for biodiesel
  • Have a combined production capacity of 185 kilotons
  • Use 100% waste feedstocks, primarily used cooking oil
  • Create biodiesel that reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 87%
  • Have combined to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 3 million tons since 2010
  • Create valuable coproducts including glycerin and potassium sulfate
