Renewable Energy Group (REG) entered into an agreement with Hunt & Sons, Inc. to supply REG Ultra Clean at 12 locations in Northern California. REG Ultra Clean blends biodiesel and renewable diesel. The patent-pending combination delivers both biodiesel’s excellent lubricity and renewable diesel’s high Cetane and low Cloud Point in a 100% renewable fuel.
Hunt & Sons is a leading California-based petroleum products distributor and operates from its headquarters in Sacramento, California. This relationship will be the first-of-its kind for the business.
REG Ultra Clean will be offered at 12 locations and is currently available at two Hunt & Sons locations: Rancho Cordova and Sacramento. It reduces emissions significantly compared to petroleum diesel, according to the company. On an annual basis, the fuel consumed through this agreement will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 250,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide, equivalent to more than 6 million miles driven by an average passenger vehicle.
REG is North America’s largest producer of biodiesel and an industry-producer of renewable diesel. REG utilizes a global integrated procurement, distribution and logistics network to operate 13 biorefineries in the US and Europe. In 2019, REG produced 495 million gallons of cleaner fuel delivering more than 4.2 million metric tons of carbon reduction.
