Iowa-based biodiesel producer Renewable Energy Group Inc. is partnering with Kellerstrass Oil Co., an independent fuel marketer in Ogden, Utah, to sell truckloads of pure or blended REG-9000-1 branded B99.9 biodiesel to fuel distributors from a 30,000-gallon tank at the Kellerstrass fuel terminal in Ogden.

REG-9000-1 has a cloud point ranging from 32 to 36 degrees Fahrenheit and a cetane number between 47 and 50, the company said.

According to REG spokesperson Alicia Clancy, the company plans to offer REG-9000-10 branded biodiesel to customers next spring. REG-9000-10 has a cloud point ranging from 46 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit and a cetane number between 53 and 59. Clancy said REG biodiesel is delivered to the terminal by rail.

According to Gary Haer, vice president of sales and marketing for REG, bringing biodiesel to the Ogden terminal will help fuel distributors in the Greater Salt Lake Area meet upcoming federal renewable fuels standard mandates; the federal Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 calls for at least 500 million gallons of biodiesel to be used in the United States in 2009.

"This biodiesel blending facility allows petroleum distributors in the Greater Salt Lake Area and beyond to start now in preparation for this legislation implementation," Haer said. REG currently markets biodiesel in all 48 continental U.S. states and offers biodiesel at more than 20 other locations nationwide, he added.
