Renewable Energy Group Expands Presence in Northeast with another New Jersey Terminal

‘As the region increases its consumption of biodiesel in transportation fuel and Bioheat® (heating oil blended with biodiesel), REG will continue to provide a reliable source of high quality, clean burning, advanced biofuel.”


 ‘This terminal position will give us additional capacity to serve the existing markets in the Northeast and prepare for potential growth moving into 2014,” said Gary Haer, REG Vice President, Sales and Marketing. ‘As the region increases its consumption of biodiesel in transportation fuel and Bioheat® (heating oil blended with biodiesel), REG will continue to provide a reliable source of high quality, clean burning, advanced biofuel.”


 


REG Clifton is located at 568 Paulison and now has REG biodiesel blended heating oil available. The company will offer other high quality biodiesel blends for transportation fuel during seasonal periods from the Clifton terminal as well. REG has five other terminal locations in the Northeast, including Whippany and Bayonne, New Jersey and New York locations in New Hyde Park, Port Chester, Ontario and Brookhaven.


 


The New Jersey State Legislature is currently considering legislation which would require heating oil to contain a three percent biodiesel blend (B3), then increasing to five percent (B5). New York City has already implemented a city-wide requirement of B2 in heating oil and the New York State Legislature passed a bill which would phase in a B2 requirement state wide over two years beginning with the 2014-2015 heating oil season. As data presented by the City of New York shows, cleaner heating oil has had a profound impact on the air quality and health of the residents of the city.
