Feedstock Development

At ​REG, we are focused on commercializing a wide variety of natural fats and oils for conversion into renewable chemicals and advanced biofuels. This ability to utilize alternative, lower-cost and lower carbon intensive feedstocks has served to secure our position as the leading biodiesel producer and marketer.

Today, we produce biodiesel from a range of high and low free fatty acid feedstocks. This versatility offers greater security in the face of uncertain commodity costs, while our advanced production methods allow us to meet or exceed ASTM D6751 standards in the U.S.

As we look to the future, we anticipate the use of even more alternative feedstocks such as camelina oil, jatropha oil and algae oil, all of which we have produced at laboratory scale to ASTM quality standards.
