NBB welcomes new governing board members

By | July 14, 2008
The biodiesel industry has elected two new members to its 15-member governing board. The National Biodiesel Board has chosen biodiesel producers Greg Hopkins of U.S. Biofuels and Scott Johnson of GEN-X Energy Group.

Hopkins, CEO of U.S. Biofuels, has 35 years of combined experience in the biodiesel and chemical engineering fields, and is involved in several chemical production associations. U.S. Biofuels, a multi-feedstock biodiesel producer, is based in Rome, Ga.

Johnson, president and CEO of GEN-X, has had extensive experience in the food processing industry in capacities ranging from operations to quality assurance. GEN-X is a multi-feedstock producer based in Burbank, Wash.

The governing board elected one of its members, Jim Conway of Griffin Industries in Cold Spring, Ky., as secretary.

The outgoing board members are Graham Noyes, outgoing secretary from Imperium Renewables in Grays Harbor, Wash., and Jake Stewart of Organic Fuels in Houston.

The governing board consists of biodiesel and feedstock producers. The November election was the first held under NBB's newly adopted structure to guarantee more biodiesel producers seats on the governing board.
