Ultra-Low Carbon Biodiesel
Crimson is California’s largest producer of ultra-low carbon biodiesel. Our BQ-9000 Accredited plant produces fuel that exceeds ASTM D6751 specifications, and meets individual end-user and terminal specifications year-round. Crimson’s biodiesel is a cleaner-burning fuel that significantly reduces carbon emissions while helping boost the longevity and performance of diesel engines.
What is ultra-low carbon biodiesel?
Biodiesel is a “drop in” diesel fuel that can be used in any diesel engine, typically in blends with petroleum-based diesel fuel.
Ultra-low carbon biodiesel is an advanced biofuel that achieves less than 20g CO2e/MJ via California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard. Crimson’s biodiesel releases 80% less carbon than petroleum diesel.
