Gulf Hydrocarbon, a provider of biodiesel to the petroleum industry, added dyed red biodiesel to its product line at IFL terminal in Houston.
The dye red is automatically blended into biodiesel at the loading rack in the terminal, mixed according to IRS protocol using a mechanical injection system to insert the dye red into the biodiesel. The dye red biodiesel is used off-road by construction companies, ranchers, farmers, and standby generators, marine and drilling industries because of its non-taxable incentive provided by the U.S. government. The cost of dye red biodiesel is comparable to diesel and current pricing can be found through OPIS or DTN, the company said.
“Dye red presents a wonderful non-taxable option for farmers, ranchers, off-road equipment haulers to better manage their logistics costs,” said Scott Hughes, director of governmental affairs for the National Biodiesel Board. “The tax incentives will continue to help develop the biodiesel industry and preserve our natural resources.”
Gulf Hydrocarbon is currently offering dye red biodiesel to Louisiana and Texas distributors that sell the product to farmers. Distributors in the Louisiana and Texas area include O’Roarke Petroleum Products, Talen’s Marine and Temple Oil Co.
