Renewable Energy Group Inc. (REG) has launched the REG Ultra Clean Diesel, what the company claims is among the lowest-emission diesel fuels on the market.
The patent-pending fuel is made of a proprietary blend of renewable diesel and biodiesel. The product is approved by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for year-round use throughout California under the Alternative Diesel Fuel regulation.
Compared to CARB diesel, REG Ultra Clean Diesel reduces total hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide emissions by 15% and particulate matter emissions by 40%. It also emits fewer nitrogen oxides, the company says.
“REG Ultra Clean Diesel significantly reduces emissions, blends easily with petroleum diesel and is one of the lowest carbon-intensity fuels of any kind on the market today,” says Gary Haer, REG’s vice president of sales and marketing. “REG is uniquely positioned to offer this biodiesel and renewable diesel blended product. We are committed to delivering low-carbon solutions and meeting our customers’ demand for cleaner products.”
