BQ-9000 top priority for new producer

By | February 10, 2009
Nova Biofuels-Seneca, the flagship refinery of Nova Biosource Fuels Inc., has yet to celebrate its first anniversary and already it has secured certification under the NBB quality assurance program BQ-9000.

"BQ-9000 certification confirms the commitment to the quality standards we began with at the onset of production last spring," said Dave Adams, Nova Biofuels-Seneca quality manager. "Participating in BQ-9000 provides additional assurance to our customer base that we produce high-quality biodiesel and the product they buy from us is produced through a certified process. We recognize that the consistent production of quality biodiesel is critical to our success and to our customers."

Industry leaders new and old are taking advantage of the prestige and quality assurance associated with BQ-9000 certification. "Producers and marketers new to the biodiesel industry recognize the value of BQ-9000 certification," said Leland Tong, chairman of the National Biodiesel Accreditation Commission. "We are seeing companies strive to meet our high-quality standards as one of their first orders of business. It is exciting that the newest members of the biodiesel industry see the critical importance of delivering a consistent, high-quality product with BQ-9000 both for their customers and for their own long-term success."

Biodiesel producer Nova Biofuels-Seneca was one of two producers recently added to the BQ-9000 roster. Prairie Pride Inc. of Nevada, Mo., also received certification.

BQ-9000 is a voluntary fuel quality assurance program overseen by the NBAC, and adopted by the NBB and the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association. Additional information about BQ-9000 is available at
