Cleaner Fuels Basics

Cleaner Fuels for a Cleaner World

Renewable Energy Group is leading the energy and transportation industries' transition to sustainability by converting renewable resources into high-quality, sustainable fuels. Renewable Energy Group is an international producer of sustainable fuels that significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions to reduce carbon impact immediately. The complete line of EnDura Fuels™ is a simple way to decarbonize now.

A Simple, Cost-Effective Transition

Our cleaner fuels are good for the environment — and they're easy 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 REG 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 much lower than petroleum diesel for decarbonization 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 over 92% of the transportation sector's fuel consumption.2

At the same time, sustainability is taking center stage for everyone from government officials to fuel producers to fleet managers to drivers. Cleaner fuels like biodiesel and renewable diesel are leading the way. They are liquid fuels that are drop-in replacements for petroleum diesel, and they offer significantly lower emissions. Cleaner fuels are the future — and the end is here now.
