Renewable Energy Group, Inc. launched REG Ultra Clean Diesel at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in Long Beach, California, on May 1.
REG Ultra Clean Diesel, a low-emission diesel fuel, is a patent-pending fuel made of a proprietary blend of renewable diesel and biodiesel, the company said, adding that the fuel is approved by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for year-round use under the state’s Alternative Diesel Fuel Regulation.
Compared to CARB’s standard for diesel fuel, REG Ultra Clean Diesel reduces total hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide emissions by 15%, particulate matter emissions by 40%, and emits less nitrogen oxides (NOx), REG said. The fuel offers even greater emissions reductions when compared to conventional diesel, the company said.
“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,” said REG’s Gary Haer, vice president, sales and marketing.
California’s low-carbon fuel standard (LCFS) is leading the way in low-carbon focused markets and helps drive demand for advanced biofuels, REG noted. To learn more about the benefits of REG Ultra Clean Diesel contact REG at 515-239-8104 or visit regi.com/ultracleandiesel.
