Renewable Energy Group, Inc. (REG), a global producer and supplier of bio-based diesel, has entered into strategic collaboration agreements with CFN and Pacific Pride, North America’s largest cardlock fueling networks, to provide cleaner fuels through their branded locations.
Partnering REG’s portfolio of bio-based diesel with CFN and Pacific Pride’s vast network of cardlocks will allow the companies to play a critical role in furthering the utilization of cleaner fuels by small businesses and fleets across North America.
REG’s bio-based diesel is easy to adopt and immediately begins reducing fossil carbon emissions. Under the new arrangement, REG’s UltraClean BlenD™, a proprietary blend of biodiesel and renewable diesel, and other fuels from REG’s EnDura Fuels™ product line, will be available to CFN and Pacific Pride customers at select locations in the U.S. and Canada.
“We continue to provide our Marketers with the tools and products they need to adapt to a changing marketplace,” stated CFN and Pacific Pride President, Eric Lind. “Our alliance with Renewable Energy Group will position our networks for the future by ensuring we have the products available to meet the needs of the growing biofuels market.”
For REG, this opens up new customer opportunities through a larger geographic footprint, and allows the business to provide bio-based diesel directly to end users. CFN and Pacific Pride are committed to providing customers with the quality and service they expect, with an expanded offering of cleaner fuel options.
“This collaboration exemplifies what we want to do at REG: work with industry leading companies and help guide customers during the energy transition by enabling them with access to clean fuel alternatives,” said Bob Kenyon, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing at REG. “Our cleaner fuels and customer service are helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions today and offer a plug-and-play solution for most fleets across North America.”
The organizations hope to begin expanding availability of bio-based diesel later this year, initially focused on select cardlocks on the West Coast. Renewable Energy Group’s technical services team will support the implementation, ensuring customers are receiving the best products for their region and season.
