The event is touted as the “largest and most comprehensive event in the history of the biodiesel industry.” This press release from the NBB says Florida has become a natural place for biodiesel with NASA, the Orlando International Airport, Universal Studios, and Florida Power & Light using the green fuel and two new biodiesel plants in the Sunshine State:

The National Biodiesel Board (NBB) hosts the fifth annual conference February 3 – 6 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando. A record 4,000 people are expected to attend. The conference is sure to enrich attendees with world class sessions and speakers during what promises to be a year full of changes for the industry.

“The biodiesel industry is at a turning point,” said Donnell Rehagen, NBB Chief Operations Officer and conference director. “The future of the industry depends on cooperation, coordination and a strategic approach to the changing landscape which provides both opportunities and challenges. This conference will provide the platform from which to launch our course for the future.”

Just like last year, Domestic Fuel will be there, covering all the events. You can stay up-to-date with the latest information at the 2008 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo blog.
