The U.S. consumes more than 40 billion gallons of diesel on U.S. roadways every year and more than 10 billion gallons of aviation fuel. Petroleum in transportation creates 1,700 Million metric tons of CO2 per year. Diesel and aviation fuel also emit soot, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides (NOx), and other hazardous air pollutants.
Renewable diesel meets the same standards and quality controls of traditional petroleum diesel. Renewable diesel performs comparably to traditional diesel but contains dramatically lower tailpipe and lifecycle emissions.
Additionally, our facilities will produce SAF and renewable diesel at or below the carbon intensity of comparable fuels in the market today. When combined with carbon capture and storage, our facilities permanently remove atmospheric carbon dioxide, lowering overall greenhouse gases. Transportation relies heavily on petroleum, and finding nature-based alternatives is one of the most powerful ways to stop greenhouse gas emissions.
