Marketing, Gary Haer. "Biodiesel is a sustainable, drop-in fuel for
diesel applications and a lower carbon fuel for a state which consumed
more than 3.5 billion gallons of distillate fuel in 2010, according to
the EIA. Renewable Energy Group is proud to offer high quality biodiesel
to help enhance energy security and lower greenhouse gas emissions
across southern California."
Haer noted the new relationship with Maxum Petroleum would benefit new
California customers. "We have confidence in the team at Maxum to
quickly and efficiently process orders and load trucks to make biodiesel
blending an easy step for any diesel distributor in the area," he added.
