Renewable Energy Group, the Largest U.S. Biodiesel Producer, Joins Diesel Technology Forum

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Diesel Technology Forum announced today that Renewable Energy Group, Inc. (REG), North America’s largest producer of biodiesel and a global leader in biofuels development, is the newest member of the Forum.

The Diesel Technology Forum is a nonprofit organization that promotes the use of the newest clean diesel technologies, including biodiesel and advanced renewable diesel fuels, in the United States and around the world.

“We are thrilled to welcome Renewable Energy Group to the Forum,” said Allen Schaeffer, executive director of the Forum. “REG’s pioneering development of biodiesel and renewable diesel fuels deliver immediate greenhouse gas and carbon emissions reductions—a critical component for the future of engine technologies. It is technologies like REG’s that we at the Forum are proud to promote alongside the most advanced diesel engine technologies, in the U.S. and globally.”

“REG is thrilled to join Diesel Technology Forum in their dedicated initiative to promote awareness about the importance of diesel engines, fuel and technology,” said Gary Haer, VP sales and marketing. “We are excited to work together on the goal of moving fuel forward towards a cleaner, more sustainable future.”

Since 1996, REG has led the industry’s development of bio-based alternatives to fossil fuels. To date, REG has produced more than 2 billion gallons of biomass-based diesel fuel; has built or acquired commercial-scale biofuel refineries across the United States and in Europe; and has established a delivery and supply network for biodiesel and other renewable fuels. Today, REG is an international producer of biomass-based diesel and a leading provider of cleaner, lower carbon intensity transportation fuels, with 14 active biorefineries, technology development capabilities, and a diverse and growing intellectual property portfolio. https://www.regi.com
