EPA approved D5 pathway for REG Geismar

May 17, 2017 |

In Washington, the Environmental Protection Agency has approved Renewable Energy Group’s pathway application for naptha and liquefied natural gas production to generate advanced biofuel D5 RINs from non-food grade corn oil produced at its Geismar, Louisiana facility. The fuel is produced from a hydrotreated process known as the REG Geisman process that uses grid-based electricity, natural gas and hydrogen, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 78%. The process is similar to one used by Diamond Green Diesel that was analyzed by the EPA in 2013.
