Leading Biodiesel Producer REG Inks Distribution Deal for Four NY, NJ Terminals

Renewable Energy Group (NASDAQ:REGI) today announced new biodiesel positions at four New York metropolitan terminal locations.

Biodiesel distribution points in Whippany, New Jersey, and New York locations in New Hyde Park, Port Chester and near Brookhaven are slated to offer quick access for blending biodiesel to augment heating oil and diesel supplies.

“Gaining access to the largest biodiesel terminal network in New York is part of Renewable Energy Group’s strategy to expand into the Northeast market as a reliable biodiesel supplier,” said Renewable Energy Group’s (REG) President and CEO, Daniel J. Oh.

“REG has biodiesel on-site in New Hyde Park today to allow area distributors and heating oil retailers to increase supply as the New York City biodiesel blend (B2) requirement goes back into effect December 1,” added Gary Haer, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for REG. The requirement first went into effect October 1, but was waived as a result of tight fuel supply issues due to superstorm Sandy.

Biodiesel is now available at the New Hyde Park facility and is being marketed by biodiesel veterans

Michael Cooper and Danny Falcone, who recently joined Renewable Energy Group’s team.

The company markets REG-9000® branded biodiesel nationwide and directly from REG terminal locations in California, Iowa, Illinois Minnesota, New Mexico, Texas, Ohio and now New York and New Jersey. Renewable Energy Group’s current operational production capacity is more than 225 million gallons annually.
