NBB features petroleum supply chain in new conference track

By NBB | November 21, 2011

One of the many benefits of biodiesel is its ability to seamlessly integrate into the existing petroleum infrastructure. Between biodiesel production and the end user stand an array of challenges as distillate fuels move throughout the petroleum supply chain.

For the first time, the 2012 National Biodiesel Conference will feature a three-part Petroleum Track. These three sessions focus on upstream and downstream supply chain management, and Bioheat. These sessions are designed to not only educate the biodiesel industry on the intricacies within the petroleum supply chain, but more importantly to educate the petroleum industry on how biodiesel fits into this intricate system.

Supply Chain Management—Upstream: In this first part of a two-part session, participants will go inside the world of refining and pipeline operations to learn how crude oil and unprocessed biodiesel are gathered, processed, stored and transitioned for downstream deployment. You will also gain insight on the value of the BQ-9000 program and how producers and marketers leverage it in their businesses.

Supply Chain Management—Downstream: Industry experts will demonstrate what it takes to deliver to the street fuels that meet and exceed performance expectations. Highlights include terminal tank management practices, field response protocols to execute in downstream quality investigations, extending the storage life of fuel, labeling, fuel quality testing and BQ-9000 adherence.

Bioheat: Today Bioheat, touted as the “Evolution of Oilheat,” is taking its rightful place among the thousands of fuel dealers excited about delivering a fuel that will compete well into the 21st century. Learn firsthand how you can leverage the product development and deployment strategies NBB has produced to build new opportunities for your business. You will witness how this success story has become a reality and how Bioheat marketers are actively evolving their industry through the use of biodiesel.
