LONG BEACH, CALIF. — Renewable Energy Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: REGI) launched the company’s latest innovation in diesel fuel, REG Ultra Clean™ Diesel, at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in Long Beach, California on Tuesday.
REG Ultra Clean Diesel, which is among the lowest emission diesel fuels on the market today, is a patent-pending fuel that is made of a proprietary blend of renewable diesel and biodiesel.
