National Biodiesel Foundation raises money at annual conference

By | March 09, 2011

The National Biodiesel Foundation’s 3rd Annual Silent Auction raised almost $50,000 to benefit the Foundation’s mission of outreach, education, research and demonstration activities for the advancement of biodiesel.


The Foundation would like to give special recognition to Cima Green Energy Services for its generous $25,000 donation at the opening of the auction. Cima Green Energy Services is the first renewable energy firm to trade biodiesel credits on Platts Market-on-Close Window.


NBF Executive Director Tom Verry was pleased with the auction results. “The generosity of both donors and bidders this year shows the level of commitment and optimism of the future of the biodiesel industry,” he said. “We are thrilled to see the auction grow each year. With donations like those from Cima Green Energy Services and our other donors, we are now able to contribute significantly toward industry goals.”


Funds raised by the 2011 Silent Auction will support Foundation goals and activities for the coming year such as Biodiesel Sustainability Awareness. This program includes vital research contributing to the fuel’s long-term sustainability, such as lifecycle analysis, land use analysis, and water usage. Other programs it supports include Bioheat Education and Infrastructure Development. The Bioheat market alone represents potentially 7 billion biodiesel gallons annually. Infrastructure Development is another program supported by the NBF. This program includes jet aircraft testing, installing 150 biodiesel terminals nationwide and environmental certifications.
