REG, Maxum strike deal to offer biodiesel near Long Beach, Calif.
Biodiesel producer and marketer, Renewable Energy Group, announced it will offer wholesale biodiesel under a new agreement with Maxum Petroleum at its Rancho Dominguez terminal location outside of Long Beach, Calif.
Under the supply agreement, the terminal is expected to offer REG-9000 biodiesel to petroleum jobbers or large fleets beginning mid-August. Maxum Petroleum is one of the largest independent energy logistics companies in North America and will operate the terminal.
REG also recently announced biodiesel availability at a terminal near Lebanon, Ohio, and at its own terminal in Clovis, N.M.
“This new terminal will help consumers in the Los Angeles region become more energy independent, meet carbon reduction goals and improve air quality with America’s Advanced Biofuel, biodiesel,” said REG’s vice president of sales and marketing, Gary Haer. “Biodiesel is a sustainable, drop-in fuel for diesel applications and a lower carbon fuel for a state which consumed more than 3.5 billion gallons of distillate fuel in 2010, according to the EIA. Renewable Energy Group is proud to offer high quality biodiesel to help enhance energy security and lower greenhouse gas emissions across southern California.”
Haer noted the new relationship with Maxum Petroleum would benefit new California customers. “We have confidence in the team at Maxum to quickly and efficiently process orders and load trucks to make biodiesel blending an easy step for any diesel distributor in the area,” he added.
