Alternative fuels industry honors National Biodiesel Board CEO

By | May 11, 2009
When it comes to domestic energy solutions, National Biodiesel Board CEO Joe Jobe has often said there is "no silver bullet," but apparently there is a "golden bullet." Honored with the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Institute's Golden Bullet Award, Jobe thanked members of the biodiesel community and pointed out that the fuel is among the renewable energy solutions that will help lead America toward energy independence.

"Biodiesel is just one key part of the solution to reduce our nation's dependence on foreign oil, preserve our natural resources, reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions and provide sustainable energy," Jobe said. "I am honored to be recognized, but thank the members of the biodiesel community, who are dedicated and persevering when it comes to ensuring America can produce its own fuel."

The AFVI recognizes outstanding leadership in the alternative fuels and vehicles industry. The Golden Bullet was among awards presented at the 15th Alternative Fuels & Vehicles Conference and Expo 2009 in Orlando, to honor leaders and organizations that further advanced technologies resulting in clean alternatives to petroleum.

"A rising tide lifts all boats, and biodiesel's successful growth has a ripple effect in demonstrating that alternative fuels can power the nation," said Kimberly Taylor, AFVI director of education and business program. Estimated domestic biodiesel production in 1999 was 500,000 MMgy. By 2008, that number had grown nearly 700 MMgy.
