Four new co-chairs have been selected to lead the Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel (NGSB) forward.
The new co-chairs are:
Jenny Frank, State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry
Leo Budy, University of Kansas
Zenith Tandukar, University of Minnesota
John Cramsey, Iowa State University
In a live Zoom event – “Science, Live: Meet Biodiesel Scientists Making an Impact” – on September 10, the NGSB will introduce its new leaders, who will share the real-world impact of their biodiesel-related initiatives.
A program of the National Biodiesel Board and United Soybean Board for college-level science students, NGSB fosters professional relationships between budding and established scientists, shares accurate information and increases collaboration with academia and the biodiesel industry.
“As we strive for our goal of 6 billion gallons of biomass-based diesel by 2030, which would double our industry’s current production, science will play a vital role,” said Donnell Rehagen, NBB CEO. “Our four new co-chairs bring diverse and promising research, as well as exciting outreach experience to NGSB.”
