Bretthauer Oil announced on Sept. 10 the availability of REG Ultra Clean Diesel for bulk delivery and for purchase at Bretthauer Oil cardlock sites in Hillsboro and McMinnville, Ore.
Developed by Renewable Energy Group Inc., it is a patent-pending blend of renewable diesel and biodiesel that significantly reduces tailpipe emissions and has multiple performance advantages compared with conventional diesel, according to Ames, Iowa-based REG.
By combining the increased cetane of renewable diesel with the increased lubricity and more complete combustion of biodiesel, REG Ultra Clean Diesel offers improved combustion quality, reduced engine wear and more reliable operation year-round compared to conventional diesel, according to the company.
REG Ultra Clean Diesel also has 20% lower total hydrocarbon emissions, 25% lower carbon monoxide emissions and 40% lower particulate emissions than ultra-low-sulfur diesel, the company said.
Bretthauer Oil will continue to offer conventional diesel products but will adopt REG Ultra Clean Diesel for its fleet to decrease the Hillsboro, Ore., company’s carbon footprint.
REG operates 13 biorefineries in the U.S. and Europe. — Transport Topics
