Stronger than ever: 2014 National Biodiesel Conference almost here

By NBB | October 28, 2013

There’s still time to register for the 2014 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo, Jan. 20-23 in sunny San Diego—but hurry! Standard registration will end soon, and so will the discount.

This year’s theme is “Strong.”

“With strong policy, strong markets and strong technical and environmental positions, the industry is again poised to see record production,” said National Biodiesel Board CEO Joe Jobe. “NBB celebrates the strong, united front of its membership and the successes of its efforts to continue to grow the U.S. biodiesel market.”

As always, the conference sessions offer education and updates that will help any biodiesel business thrive, while enhancing understanding of issues relevant to the biodiesel industry. Among the usual insightful session staples are some new ones, including:

• Ask the EPA.

• Frack Attack: Biodiesel in a New Energy World.

• California State Policy Update.

• The Final Frontier? Technical Research to Open New Markets.

• Behind-the-Scenes with the Directors of GasHole.

• Transparent Transactions: Creating Balance Among Buyers and Sellers.

The 2014 event has several changes in store, including an earlier time frame than its traditional first week of February. Living up to the conference’s reputation as “the” event of the year where biodiesel business gets done, there is more networking time built into the schedule. Also, unconventional session formats will add variety to the rich educational content, such as “Ask the Expert” and “Conversessions.” A vehicle showcase and Ride-and-Drive will show off the ever-expanding array of B20-approved vehicles.  

Register now at, where you can also view session titles, descriptions and tentative times. 

The conference takes place at the San Diego Convention Center and San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina.
