History of NBB
Based in Jefferson City, Missouri, the National Biodiesel Board is the nonprofit trade association dedicated to coordinating the biodiesel industry and educating the public about the fuel. State soybean commodity groups, which funded several biodiesel research and development programs with checkoff dollars, founded the National Soy Diesel Development Board in 1992. The board changed its name to the National Biodiesel Board in 1994 to reflect the need for all feedstock sources. NBB membership is comprised of state, national and international feedstock and processor organizations, biodiesel suppliers, fuel marketers, distributors and technology providers.
Membership of the National Biodiesel Board has grown significantly since it’s inception. Starting with seven members in 1992, NBB now counts more than 170 companies as members. Our diverse membership provides a strong base for the industry to solicit and gain the support of Congress with member companies from coast-to-coast, representing nearly all 50 states.
