REG, J.B. Hunt Discuss Renewable Diesel, Biodiesel Strategies

Cleaner-burning and lower-emission fuels, such as biodiesel and renewable diesel, are helping transportation industries, including trucking and rail, meet their sustainability targets, explained Cynthia Warner, president and CEO of Renewable Energy Group, in a March 30 webinar.

“With advances in policy and increasing consumer awareness and demand for carbon reduction, fuels like biodiesel, renewable diesel and other renewable fuels are an important element of business strategy for every fuel-dependent entity,” Warner said, adding that a recent study revealed that 91% of fleet leaders feel significant pressure to set and meet aggressive sustainability goals.

The webinar, titled “Fueling a Sustainable Future,” featured speakers from various industries and was presented in conjunction with the launch of REG’s new EnDura Fuels line of five bio-based diesel fuels. These include PuriD, a next-generation biodiesel that REG said exceeds industry quality standards and enables customers to blend PuriD into renewable diesel at virtually any level and use higher biodiesel blends with petroleum diesel year-round.
