VelociD™: REG's Renewable Diesel

Reduce emissions without sacrificing performance.

VelociD™ is an advanced biofuel from Renewable Energy Group that reduces greenhouse emissions while meeting the same ASTM-D975 specification as petroleum diesel. It can be added to the existing pipeline system, making it easy to incorporate into the diesel stream.

Fuel Specifications

  • VelociD™ is 100 percent hydrocarbon — like petroleum diesel.
  • VelociD™ can be blended with biodiesel and petroleum diesel.
  • Blends can be used in any diesel engine without modifications.
  • VelociD™ aids self-ignition of fuel and allows for easier starting, smoother running engines and reliable operation because of increased cetane

Fuel Benefits

  • Renewable Diesel is included in the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPAct) standards to meet a portion of the annual alternative fuel vehicle acquisition requirements.
  • It has been tested by the EPA and passes their Clean Air Health Effects testing requirements.
  • RD qualifies for various state biofuel tax incentives.
