SAN MATEO, Calif. — Booster, a fuel delivery service, and Renewable Energy Group (REG), a producer and provider of lower carbon fuels, are partnering to provide mobile delivery of renewable diesel, biodiesel and blended fuels to fleets. The service started in August in California and has the potential to grow nationally.

Under the new partnership, REG UltraClean Blend and other renewable and biodiesel fuels will be delivered to customers via Booster.

This new service will let companies seamlessly transition their fleets to much lower-emission fuels with no equipment or infrastructure costs, said Frank Mycroft, CEO and co-founder of Booster. Our partnership with REG will provide fleet operators with an 'easy button' to solve their sustainability, energy reliability and operational efficiency needs. Combining Booster and REG capabilities also offers fleet managers the data and intelligence required to meet increasingly ambitious environmental standards and business optimization targets.

As part of the partnership, REG, based in Ames, Iowa, will be an exclusive supplier of bio-based diesel to San Mateo, Calif.-based Booster and has become an investor in the company. Booster will also be an exclusive mobile fueler to REG and will partner with REG to explore expansion opportunities together.

This collaboration is a perfect match for us, bringing together two innovative, sustainable solutions and building on our downstream strategy to reach customers and provide a first-class experience, said Bob Kenyon, senior vice president of sales and market for REG. The energy transition is happening, and this is the right place and right time for customers to adopt bio-based diesel and immediately reduce emissions in an easy and efficient manner. Our investment in Booster solidifies our commitment to enabling consumers with the ability to access clean fuel choices.

The REG and Booster collaboration will initially focus on servicing fleet customers in California, starting with the San Francisco Bay Area and Orange County, with additional markets to follow.
