REG Solutions - West Coast

Making it easier to meet Low Carbon Fuel Standard and Greenhouse Gas regulations.

At REG, we help you navigate the biodiesel industry  while achieving emissions goals.

As more fleets and businesses on the West Coast strive to reduce carbon emissions, REG continues to make biodiesel more accessible. As the largest domestic biofuels producer, we’re your partner when it comes to meeting Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) goals and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) regulations, and we’ll do what it takes to make your journey with biofuels a success.

REG is a feedstock flexible company that uses a variety of lower carbon feedstocks to ensure you can meet your emissions goals. Feedstock flexibility allows us to deliver biodiesel with lower carbon intensity (CI) scores, making it easier for you to receive credits under LCFS. Plus, our team of experts will help you navigate the complexities of LCFS, tax incentives and RIN trading so you can increase profit margins and grow your business — now and in the future.

REG-9000 Biodiesel

Where clean energy meets smart business. 

The wide range of benefits that come with biodiesel stretch far beyond sustainability. You can also use REG-9000 Biodiesel to boost profits, performance and efficiency as you achieve emissions goals. 

  • Provides economic advantages with  tax incentives and RIN trading.
  • Increased lubricity helps keep engines cooler,  running quieter and operating longer.
  • Reduces lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions  by 57 to 86%.1
  • Distilled product available for improved  cold weather performance.

REG-9000/RD Renewable Diesel

A smart fuel alternative.

This advanced biofuel reduces greenhouse  emissions while meeting the ASTM D975  specification for petroleum diesel. It also:

  • Qualifies for several state and federal biofuel  tax incentives. 
  • Promotes easier-starting, smoother running  engines.
  • Meets the EPA’s Clean Air Health Effects  testing requirements.

A closer look at the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard.

California enacted the world’s first Low Carbon Fuel Standard, requiring the reduction in carbon intensity in transportation fuels, and it continues to lead the country in terms of greenhouse gas reduction practices. However, sustainability is a growing trend among corporations, local governments and the general public in every state.

  • 10% — The percentage that the carbon  intensity of fuels sold in California will decrease  by 2020. 
  • Up to 90% — The percentage by which biofuel  can reduce life-cycle greenhouse  gas emissions. 

How the California Greenhouse Gas Cap-and-Trade Program affects you. 

The cap-and-trade program establishes a limit on greenhouse gas emissions, and that limit is translated into tradable emissions allowances. 1 metric ton of carbon dioxide or carbon d 1 ALLOWANCE = dioxide equivalent 

Why it matters to fuel suppliers.

In 2015, cap-and-trade rules extended to fuel suppliers for both stationary and transportation uses. However, not all fuel suppliers may be affected. An entity emitting more than 10,000 metric tons of CO2 must measure its GHG emissions and report them to the California Air Resources Board (CARB). If an entity emits more than 25,000 metric tons of CO2, it is required to comply with the regulations. 

How biodiesel makes it easier. 

Biodiesel reduces greenhouse gas emissions because the carbon dioxide released is offset by the carbon dioxide sequestered while growing the feedstock.

Fueled by performance — the operational 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, they also deliver impressive operational benefits.

Improved lubricity

Biodiesel can add fuel lubricity to diesel fuels at blend levels as low as 1 percent.2 This is especially helpful because ultra-low sulfur diesel 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 renewable hydrocarbon diesel’s high combustion quality results in similar or better vehicle performance compared with conventional diesel.3
