REG Bio-ResidualTM Oil — Better Heating Performance for Industrial Uses

A co-product of the biodiesel refining process, REG Bio-Residual™ Oil offers exceptional BTU performance when burned for heat, power generation or other industrial uses. Whether used as a straight replacement for fuel oil, sprayed onto a traditional fuel source or blended with conventional heating oils, REG Bio-Residual Oil provides higher energy density than coal or wood-fiber material while reducing emissions. REG Bio-Residual Oil is an exceptional and renewable alternative to fuel oil, coal, natural gas and even other biomass fuel sources. 

Features and Benefits

Better heating performance Up to 135,000 BTUs per gallon, which is a higher BTU value than coal or wood-fiber material, with approximately 100–125% more energy per pound than wood chips or pellets. 
Cleaner burning Creates less particulate matter and significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions compared to alternative fuels. REG Bio-Residual Oil burns cleanly and produces less particulate matter and sulfur than other fuel sources. Download the fact sheet below for more details.
Renewable Produced with guaranteed quality from plentiful recycled fats and oils — such as used cooking oil, distillers corn oil, animal fat and other vegetable oils —  offering an affordable way to meet sustainability goals.     

More Heat With Fewer Emissions

Even while delivering more heat than coal and wood-fiber material, REG Bio-Residual Oil dramatically reduces emissions compared to traditional fuel oil. In fact, it is the commercially available liquid fuel with the lowest carbon intensity.
