Manchester United is achieving cleaner operations after deploying EnDura Fuels™ from Renewable Energy Group (REG) into their groundskeeping equipment.
After more than 100 years of utilising petroleum diesel in their equipment, Manchester United is taking their next step to help create a cleaner world.
REG and the club announced their global partnership in the summer of 2021 after Manchester United sought out a partner that would help them with their sustainability goals.
Earlier this year, REG began providing the Club with UltraClean BlenD™, its proprietary blend of biodiesel and renewable diesel, which the club initially utiliced in their groundskeeping equipment on their training grounds.
It has since expanded this to the facilities and equipment at  its Old Trafford stadium.
“As we celebrate world Earth Day, it’s absolutely remarkable to see one of the biggest sports teams in the world taking this step to create a cleaner world,” said Bob Kenyon, senior vice president of sales and marketing at REG.
“REG is proud to be Manchester United’s clean fuels transition partner of choice, and our proprietary line of EnDura Fuels™ provides a solution that allows them to improve their operations TODAY, without requiring significant infrastructure investments.”
The organisations hope to reach a commercial agreement for fuel purchasing in the coming months. In addition, Manchester United wants to explore incorporating renewable fuels into additional club operations, including generators.
“We want to use the power of football to really have a positive impact on our people, on the environment in which we operate, and also on the wider society,” said Collette Roche, chief operating officer of Manchester United. “We constantly want to get better in every area, and push the boundaries further, and we look to our partners to help us do that.”
