NBB's Sustainability Task Force works toward industry cooperation

By | February 10, 2009
The National Biodiesel Board Sustainability Task Force seeks collaboration among several groups to meet the biodiesel industry's commitment to sustainability. In addition to six educational sessions and nearly two dozen speakers on key sustainability issues at the 2009 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo, the Sustainability Task Force welcomed participants to the Sustainable Biodiesel Summit, held just before the formal conference events began. Specifically, in addition to the summit, the task force worked with the Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels to gather industry input on their sustainability principles for biofuels.

Introduced at the 2008 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo, the Sustainability Task Force has made significant progress as they work to assess and improve business practices related to environmentally, economically and socially responsible biodiesel production. The task force crafted six policy resolutions that have been adopted by NBB membership.

These resolutions include policies such as promoting the use of sustainable feedstocks and supporting research to improve the science of greenhouse gas emission calculations.

The group's November 2008 symposium brought together a cross-section of expertise to exchange technical information on life-cycle analysis, land-use change and food security.
