Biodiesel industry links up with video technology

By NBB | April 21, 2011

Sustainability is an important aspect of the biodiesel industry, and it is also an important principle by which the National Biodiesel Board conducts business. One of the ways the industry has made day-to-day business more sustainable is through increased use of technology.

The NBB has recently partnered with St. Louis-based Lifestream, a direct reseller of the registered trademarked LifeSize Video Conferencing equipment, to purchase and to offer LifeSize products to members. This network of technology within the industry, termed BioLink HD, is helping to improve communication capabilities while reducing travel time, expenses and the industry’s overall carbon footprint.

“NBB endorses this product because it works,” said NBB CEO Joe Jobe. “NBB is proud to be working with our partner LifeStream to deliver a video conferencing tool that will not only make communication more efficient but also assist in our sustainability mission. We can now participate in meetings and programs around the world without getting in a car or on a plane.”

The biodiesel industry is ever-changing and the NBB is continually looking for ways to help members better compete in the global market.

“We use LifeSize video conferencing equipment in both our headquarters and our Washington, D.C., office,” Jobe added. “Our goal is to build a communication network within our industry so we can all be more efficient with our resources and help reduce our carbon footprint by decreasing our travel. I encourage you to become part of the BioLinkHD network.”

LifeSize technology combines a high-definition video experience with a rich set of features to deliver a powerful, flexible and easy-to-use video communication solution. All LifeSize products deliver quality high-definition video and audio providing for authentic user experiences.
