Renewable diesel

Inland Waterways

In John W. Stone Oil Distributor’s continuing effort to reduce our carbon footprint we have transitioned vessels in our fleet from conventional diesel to renewable diesel. In association with that we have begun offering renewable diesel to our customer base as a certificated RD99 and in various locations as a blend with ULSD. Being a direct drop in diesel, at a very modest differential in price, and with ratable volume, this was the most logical step for Stone. We believe this will be the most logical step for the maritime industry in reducing GHG emissions in a well-to-wake, or as we would like to say field-to-funnel analysis. The ease of transitioning from conventional to renewable is seamless; no operational or equipment changes, fully compatible with existing onboard diesel with none of the issues experienced with biodiesel. Availability of the fuel for domestic marine transportation is key for our distribution strategy. With our combined terminals and floating assets, we will continue to supply the conventional marine ULSD in conjunction with the renewable diesel and will continue to pursue market opportunities for all products.
