National Biodiesel Conference to Usher in New Era of Clean Fuels

January 14, 2022

Industry name change reflects growing demand for low-carbon fuels


JEFFERSON CITY, Mo –The past year has presented a dizzying array of business and policy decarbonization efforts in the transportation and home heating sectors as the United States continues to work toward a common goal of a better, cleaner future. The biodiesel, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel industries are “All In” on this goal and will come together at the 2022 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, Jan. 17-20, ready to meet the challenges ahead.

The National Biodiesel Conference & Expo is the premier industry event bringing together stakeholders from all sectors to learn, do business and strategize about how to meet the growing demand for clean fuels amid rapid decarbonization efforts.

“This year, our industry celebrates its 30th anniversary, and with that, we will formally announce an organizational name change that capitalizes on the connected energies of everyone in the industry working together toward a clean fuels future,” said National Biodiesel Board CEO Donnell Rehagen. “The new name reflects the evolution and growth in demand for all of the products we create – biodiesel, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel. Our membership spans North America and represents nearly all of the companies that are producing the most sustainable fuels on the planet. This new name will position us for growth in the clean energy ecosystem and continue building on our longtime role as the voice of this industry to markets, stakeholders and policymakers.”

The conference agenda features educational sessions that will help participants expand industry knowledge and prepare for success in a rapidly changing world. Sessions include:  

  • Coming up Aces: Biodiesel, Renewable Diesel and Sustainable Aviation Fuel in the Age of Decarbonization
  • Doubling Down on Feedstock: How Will We Meet Growing Demand?
  • Beyond the Road: New and Expanding Markets
  • Understanding ESG in the New Corporate America

Made from an increasingly diverse mix of resources, such as recycled cooking oil, soybean oil and animal fats, biodiesel and renewable diesel are better, cleaner fuels that are available now for use in existing diesel engines without modification. The National Biodiesel Board is the U.S. trade association representing the entire biodiesel and renewable diesel value chain, including producers, feedstock suppliers and fuel distributors.
