Commercial site brings all things biodiesel together

By | January 24, 2007
As the industry clearinghouse for biodiesel information, the National Biodiesel Board (NBB) now offers biodiesel commerce online. The Web site,, is launching as the world's largest biodiesel marketplace. A variety of services assembled within it include online ads and classified ads, a biodiesel store, and a biodiesel directory, in which entities can be listed for free.

"We have long-known the need for this service, and it makes sense for NBB to take this step, as many people turn to NBB's Web site for all the information on biodiesel," said Joe Jobe, NBB CEO. "This truly allows biodiesel information-, service- and product-seekers a one-stop shop, as and will be linked."

The NBB's official Web site,, continues to be the information source for biodiesel, but will offer the next level of service. The site will focus on products, services and industry-related companies. It will launch at the National Biodiesel Conference and Expo on Feb. 4 in San Antonio, Texas.

Visitors to the NBB's official Web site continue to increase, with over 5 million visitors per year equaling over 32 million hits per year. The Web site has nearly 14,000 visitors per day, on average. As a result of this attention, the NBB received numerous requests to advertise or sell products through its official Web site. Its new Web site will offer this advertising avenue.

Here are some additional things on

--The site's store sells what's Biodiesel Store has sold in the past. Offerings range from apparel to promotional materials.

--The directory is a continually updated biodiesel directory that is searchable in various ways, including by name or category. Sign up now at for a free listing in the directory.

--Services include real estate listings, business services, feedstock supply, and shows and meetings, to name a few.

--Banner ads and other levels of advertising are available. For more information, contact Doug Whitehead, NBB project manager, at [email protected]. Advertising space is limited.

" is there for companies that want to get the word out on their product on a large scale or that need to know where to turn for services and products helping their biodiesel business, and to consumers wanting to make biodiesel-related purchases," Whitehead said.
