Whole Energy expands Calif. biodiesel offering with REG-9000

By Renewable Energy Group Inc. | September 05, 2012

Biodiesel is now available via truckload from Renewable Energy Group’s new biodiesel location in Rancho Dominguez outside of Long Beach, Calif. The first truckload of biodiesel was picked up by Whole Energy, a regional distributor and retailer with locations in Washington, Oregon and California.

“Whole Energy is committed to biodiesel, helping Californians meet their carbon reduction goals, and offering supply for Oregon and Washington blending requirements,” said Gary Haer, vice president of sales and marketing at REG. “REG’s terminal agreement with Maxum Petroleum expands the opportunity for West Coast distributors like Whole Energy to blend biodiesel for public and private diesel fleets.”

“We are excited about the opportunity to offer biodiesel from the nation’s largest biodiesel producer and marketer in California,” said Atul Deshmane, Whole Energy’s president and CEO. “Whole Energy is committed to a multi-region approach for offering biodiesel blends for fleets and consumers who are looking to go green, enhance performance and protect the earth with a sustainable fuel. REG biodiesel has demonstrated both great performance and carbon intensities.” REG recently registered its REG Seneca (Ill.) plant with CARB in accordance with LCFS and REG-9000 biodiesel from that location has a carbon intensity as low as 4.0 gCO2e/MJ, according to CARB.
