Renewable Energy Group Inc. announced Oct. 27 that commercial-scale quantities of renewable hydrocarbon diesel (RHD) produced at the company’s Geismar, La., biorefinery are now available for sale.

Oh, REG president and CEO. “REG-9000/RHD is a new addition to our fuel product line-up designed to serve our customers’ needs for great fuel that also delivers towards our nation’s energy diversity, environmental and food security goals.”
