The mission of the National Biodiesel Foundation (NBF) is outreach, education, research and demonstration activities for the advancement of biodiesel.
“We do things the National Biodiesel Board can’t do,” says Biodiesel Foundation president Jeff Lynn of Illinois. That includes such activities as Congressional tours to educate legislators about where biodiesel comes from and how it is made, as well as how it is used. The foundation also hosted its third Sustainability and Land Use Change workshop in St. Louis last September.
Lynn joined NBF Executive Director Tom Verry on stage at the 2019 Biodiesel Conference to talk about some of the foundation’s 2019 activities, and to help with this year’s live auction for a Yellowstone Tour and a chartered fishing trip.

Lynn also represents the Illinois Soybean Association on the NBB board and in this interview he talks about the importance of farmer support for biodiesel, Illinois’ B20 Club, and how everyone can help fund the foundation any time we buy something on Amazon!
