Save the date: 2015 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo

By NBB | July 31, 2014

Mark your calendar now for the biggest biodiesel event of the year—the National Biodiesel Conference & Expo to be held Jan. 19-22 at the Fort Worth, Texas, Convention Center. This annual event promises to be the most important ever. 

“By January, the industry will have received the EPA’s long-awaited final volume proposal for the 2014 renewable fuel standard (RFS) and will be adapting to it—good or bad,” said Donnell Rehagen, NBB’s chief operating officer and conference director. “Coming together as an industry at the conference will be critical to charting our course for continued growth under the new rule.”

Whether you’re a biodiesel producer, marketer, supplier, funder, retailer, researcher or student, you won’t want to miss the 2015 conference. The event offers trade show opportunities as well as rich content, inspiring speakers and numerous networking opportunities. 

“We tailor the format to facilitate as much networking as possible—both formal and informal,” Rehagen added. “We’re proud of the National Biodiesel Conference & Expo’s reputation as an event where business gets done.” 

As in the past, the latest B20-approved diesel vehicles will be on display at the vehicle showcase and the Ride-n-Drive, where participants can get behind the wheel and go for a spin.

Student scientists will again be invited to participate in the conference in an effort to foster collaboration and professional development opportunities for the future leaders of our industry. The United Soybean Board and state checkoff organizations will offer scholarships to bring Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel to the conference where they will share their research in a breakout and/or poster session. Details on NGSB scholarships will be available this fall.

The conference website, registration link and exhibitor prospectus are coming soon. Please check for details in the coming weeks. Additionally, NBB staff members are working on the program now. If you have ideas for breakout sessions or speakers, please contact Kaleb Little, [email protected] in the NBB office.
