Renewable Energy Group Inc. (REG), a bio-based diesel producer in North America, announced the introduction of a line of branded fuel solutions, EnDura Fuels. This branded product launch supports Renewable Energy Group’s ongoing efforts to help the transport industry meet its sustainability and business growth objectives, while strengthening the Company’s position in the marketplace.
The EnDura Fuels line consists of five bio-based diesel fuels including Renewable Energy Group’s newest product, PuriD, a next-generation biodiesel. PuriD exceeds industry quality standards and enables customers to blend PuriD into renewable diesel at virtually any level and utilize higher biodiesel blends with petroleum diesel year-round.
These solutions are helping the trucking, rail, marine, aviation and other industries meet their sustainability targets through cleaner burning, lower emission fuels, the group noted . With advances in policy and increasing consumer awareness and demand for carbon reduction, fuels like biodiesel, renewable diesel and other renewable fuels are an important element of business strategy for every fuel-dependent entity.
The transportation industry is responsible for 29% of all U.S. carbon emissions, with trucking the largest contributor. Biodiesel and renewable diesel generate the greatest reduction in fossil carbon emissions, up to 100%, when compared with other alternatives in the transportation sector, REG noted.

“Improving the environmental sustainability of our operations is a key area of focus for our business,” said Craig Harper, Chief Sustainability Officer and Executive Vice President for J.B. Hunt. “Alternative fuels, such as the new EnDura Fuels branded product line from REG, play a pivotal role in helping our organization and industry reduce our carbon footprint. Today, more than 50% of all fuel purchased by J.B. Hunt is a bio-blended diesel product.”
