There's something for everyone at the National Biodiesel Conference

By | December 15, 2006
It's Congress-meets-country in San Antonio for the National Biodiesel Conference and Expo in February. An impressive lineup of guest speakers and performers will entertain and educate attendees like no other biodiesel event.

The Congressional rock band The Second Amendments will perform at the opening night reception and serve on a panel during Monday's general session. Political pundit couple James Carville and Mary Matalin close the conference with their unique style of communicating how to make politics work in your favor. Country music legend Merle Haggard will kick off biodiesel's first political action committee (PAC) with a live performance you won't soon forget. "With escalating gas prices and dwindling petroleum resources, biodiesel is the next step toward a solution to the world's energy crisis and a way to diminish dependency on foreign oil," Haggard said.

Other highlights include biodiesel supporters Larry Hagman, who played J.R. Ewing on the TV show "Dallas;" and Bill Mack, the XM Satellite Cowboy. Dr. John G. Stoessinger-an internationally recognized political analyst and prize-winning author of 10 world politics books, including The Might of Nations: World Politics in Our Time-will serve as a keynote speaker. Stoessinger escaped from Nazi-occupied Austria and went on to serve with the United Nations and the Council on Foreign Relations.

A record number of biodiesel marketers, feedstock growers, fuel distributors, government leaders and biodiesel users attended the 2006 meeting. New to the rich educational program for 2007 will be an additional track on production. The conference, to be held at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center, will include an array of networking and social events in this dynamic city, along with the expo showcasing more than 175 booths.

The National Biodiesel Board (NBB) and sponsors host the National Biodiesel Conference and Expo. For more details and to register, visit
