Conference Notes

By Ron Kotrba | February 28, 2012

Attending the National Biodiesel Conference in Orlando was great. It was a pleasure to see so many familiar faces and hear the latest updates from my friends in the industry. What a football game, huh? The Patriots’ last-second effort didn’t pay off though, and the Giants took the game. It sounds like next year’s conference in Las Vegas will not include a Super Bowl party, a first since the event began nearly a decade ago.

If you could not attend the show and want to get up to speed on the major talking points, check out my editorial coverage on pages 9 and 10. Also, check out the Inside NBB section in pages 12-15 to read the National Biodiesel Board CEO Joe Jobe’s take on the latest issues facing the industry, and to see conference photos, who won the Eye on Biodiesel awards, and more. Also, visit to read my direct reporting from the conference in Orlando. I hope to see you all in Las Vegas next year.
