Willie Nelson to address trucking, biodiesel industries at National Biodiesel Conference

By | December 01, 2005
Musician and biodiesel advocate Willie Nelson will headline what promises to be the most comprehensive educational and networking event in the biodiesel industry's history: the 2006 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo. With more people using biodiesel than ever before, the doubling of biodiesel production and favorable legislation that kick-started the industry, the National Biodiesel Board has made this ever-growing conference the single best source of biodiesel information. To establish your strong footing in the industry, register for the conference, held Feb. 5-8 in San Diego, Calif.

This has been a landmark year for biodiesel, with production for 2005 expected to triple 2004 volumes. With sessions covering everything from fuel quality standards, legislation, new marketing strategies, trends in bioheat and production forecasts of biodiesel, this conference will be the year to attend.

Major attractions of the conference will include Nelson, a partner in Willie Nelson's Biodiesel, participating in a live Bill Mack, The Satellite Cowboy Show broadcast on XM Satellite Radio during a general session. The conference will also serve as a launching pad for Biodiesel America, an engaging new book by Josh Tickell about the past and present biodiesel industry and its role in extending America's fuel supply.

With six tracks-technical, markets, regulatory, fuel distribution, original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and user-and 40 sessions, attendees will have a rich variety of educational programs from which to choose. Some educational session examples are "Selling Americans on the Diesel Engine," "Inside the Federal Biodiesel Tax Credit" and "Supply, Capacity and Pricing Trends of Biodiesel."
The conference will also feature a 125-exhibit trade show with the field's latest products and services. Other events include valuable pre-conference training sessions, like a plant feasibility workshop, and networking and social events that include a golf tournament, Super Bowl reception and book launch party featuring a performance by singer/songwriter Emily Richards.
