The National Biodiesel Board has two new members on its Governing Board.

This NBB release says Greg Hopkins of US Biofuels and Scott Johnson of GEN-X Energy Group replace Graham Noyes, outgoing secretary, of Imperium Renewables, Grays Harbor, Washington; and Jake Stewart of Organic Fuels in Houston:

Hopkins, CEO of US Biofuels, has 35 years of combined experience in the biodiesel and chemical engineering fields, and is involved in several chemical production associations. US Biofuels, a multi-feedstock biodiesel producer, is based in Rome, Ga.

Johnson, president & CEO of GEN-X, has had extensive experience in the food processing industry in capacities ranging from operations to quality assurance. GEN-X is a multi-feedstock producer based in Burbank, Wash.

The governing board elected one of its members, Jim Conway, Griffin Industries, Cold Spring, Ky., as secretary.

This was the first year the NBB used a newly adopted structure to guarantee more biodiesel producers seats on the governing board.
