Booster expands renewable diesel product offering in California

Booster has expanded its renewable diesel product offering to three new markets in California. The move enables nearly 50 Booster-fueled fleets in Sacramento, San Jose and San Diego — totalling nearly 1,000 fleet vehicles serviced daily — to slash their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 70%, Booster says.

With the addition of these new markets to Booster’s existing renewable diesel offerings in Orange County and the San Francisco Bay Area, the mobile fueling company now offers renewable diesel in a total of five major locations.

Booster currently offers a renewable diesel primarily through a strategic partnership with Renewable Energy Group (REG). The partnership provides customers with broader access to lower-carbon fuels. Currently, out of about 145,000 gas stations in the U.S., only 6,003 carry alternative fuels (including compressed natural gas, ethanol, biodiesel and hydrogen) — fewer than 0.5%.
