The National Biodiesel Foundation (NBF) has elected Lindsay Fitzgerald who works for Ames, Iowa-based Renewable Energy Group (REG), to its executive committee. NBF was created to advanced initiatives important to the commercial biodiesel industry.
“I am excited to be a part of such an amazing Foundation that focuses on biodiesel research and education. Over the past several years, REG has been a constant supporter and donor to the Foundation, and I have seen the benefits first hand,” said Fitzgerald. “Now is a perfect opportunity to become fully involved in the NBF’s daily activities and decision making.”
Fitzgerald is based out of Washington, DC and joins the NBF on behalf of REG. Prior to joining REG, she worked on Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) implementation at the National Biodiesel Board (NBB) as Director of Regulatory Affairs, and before that at the US Environmental Protection Agency.
“We thank Lindsay and REG for volunteering her time and experience to the Foundation. We look forward to working with her over the next several years,” added NBF President Mike Cunningham. “Through donations to the Foundation, we are able to support important research and educational activities needed for biodiesel’s growth.”
