Lower Carbon Fuels Basics

Lower Carbon Fuels For Reducing CO2 GHG Emissions

Chevron Renewable Energy Group is leading the energy and transportation industries' transition to lower carbon solutions by converting renewable resources into high-quality, lower carbon fuels. Chevron Renewable Energy Group is an international producer of lower carbon fuels that can help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. EnDura Fuels™ – a complete line of fuel solutions, can help you meet your company's lower carbon and profitability targets.

A Simple, Cost-Effective Transition

Our lower carbon fuels can help reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions  — and they're easier 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.

Here are some of the ways Chevron Renewable Energy Group fuels are making a difference compared with petroleum diesel:

  • InfiniD™ – Up to 100% of fossil carbon1
  • VelociD™ – Up to 100% for fossil carbon
  • UltraClean BlenD™ – Can provide the lowest overall engine emissions of any diesel fuel option
  • PuriD™ – Carbon Intensity (CI) scores that are lower than petroleum diesel allow for reduced carbon intensity now

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 forward-thinking organizations are already looking that far ahead in this ever-changing landscape. They're finding that liquid fuels will continue to dominate in the coming decades. In 2050, for example, liquid fuels will account for more than 92% of the transportation sector's fuel consumption.2

At the same time, reducing carbon is taking center stage for everyone from government officials to fuel producers to fleet managers to drivers. Lower carbon fuels such as biodiesel and renewable diesel are leading the way. They are liquid fuels that are drop-in replacements for petroleum diesel, and can reduce carbon intensity. Lower carbon fuels are the future — and the future is here now.
