Peter Cremer North America becomes first BQ-9000 accredited biodiesel producer

By | October 01, 2004
The National Biodiesel Board (NBB) announced that Peter Cremer North America LP of Cincinnati, Ohio, is the first BQ-9000 accredited producer of biodiesel under the National Biodiesel Accreditation Program-a cooperative and voluntary fuel quality program that operates as an autonomous committee of NBB.

"The BQ-9000 program was developed to promote the commercial success and public acceptance of biodiesel by recognizing producers and marketers who demonstrate compliance with high quality standards," said Joe Jobe, executive director of NBB.

The BQ-9000 program is a unique combination of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) specification for biodiesel and a quality systems program that includes storage, sampling, testing, blending, shipping, distribution and fuel management practices.
The certification process, which is open to all companies that actively-or plan to-produce, distribute or market biodiesel either in its pure form or for blending, includes an application review and on-site inspection by independent auditors. The two types of accreditation in the program are Accredited Producer and Certified Marketer.
