Patent-pending fuel delivers higher performance and lower emissions than conventional diesel
Hillsboro, OR /PRNewswire/ - Bretthauer Oil announced today the availability of REG Ultra Clean™ Diesel for bulk delivery and for purchase at Bretthauer Oil cardlock sites in Hillsboro, Oregon and McMinnville, Oregon. Developed by Renewable Energy Group, Inc., (Nasdaq: REGI) REG Ultra Clean Diesel delivers superior performance with fewer emissions than conventional diesel, renewable diesel or biodiesel.
The distribution of REG Ultra Clean Diesel is part of Bretthauer Oil's commitment to provide customers with new products and services that are more environmentally sustainable and offer superior performance to traditional fuels. Bretthauer Oil will continue to offer conventional diesel products in addition to REG Ultra Clean Diesel, but will adopt REG Ultra Clean Diesel for its own fleet to decrease the company's carbon footprint.
Washington County (Oregon) is committed as the first customer to purchase REG Ultra Clean Diesel from Bretthauer Oil. "Using REG Ultra Clean Diesel will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and particulate matter and make our engines run cleaner and, in turn, more efficiently," said Tom Keyser, CFFA/CAFS, Fleet Manager for Washington County. "REG Ultra Clean Diesel is a step in the right direction to move away from pure fossil-based diesel, and we look forward to partnering with Bretthauer Oil Company to find more sustainable and cleaner diesel solutions for our vehicles."
REG Ultra Clean Diesel is a patent-pending blend of renewable diesel and biodiesel that significantly reduces tailpipe emissions and has multiple performance advantages compared to conventional diesel. 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. On top of these significant performance benefits, REG Ultra Clean Diesel has 20 percent lower total hydrocarbon emissions, 25 percent lower carbon monoxide emissions and 40 percent lower particulate emissions than ultra-low sulfur diesel. The result is a high-performance fuel that is significantly better for air quality and the environment than conventional diesel.
