The recent renewal of the federal $1-a-gallon biodiesel tax incentive, along with the newly enacted Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS2) that will require 800 million gallons of biodiesel to be used in 2011, make it more important than ever to attend this year’s Biodiesel Conference & Expo, Feb. 6-9, in Phoenix, Arizona.
National Biodiesel Board officials say they’ll have a wide variety of government experts and EPA officials on hand at this year’s conference to explain the changes and what they mean for biodiesel producers and users. NBB CEO Joe Jobe says:
The uncertainty surrounding the biodiesel tax credit and the implementation of the Renewable Fuels Standard-2 made 2010 tough on all of us, to be sure. But we have high hopes that this conference will be the springboard to greater opportunities. In fact, 2011 has the potential to be a banner year for biodiesel production. The RFS2, now that it is fully implemented, will be the driving force behind biodiesel demand in 2011 and beyond. NBB recognizes that this relatively new legislation is still unclear to many in the industry. That’s why we are offering a comprehensive workshop, free with your full registration, which will dive into the “nuts and bolts” of the RFS2, featuring some of the top experts on the issue. This is truly a “can’t miss” event if you plan to be part of the biodiesel industry moving forward.
Don’t forget, the deadline for lodging at the conference is Jan. 10, 2011. More details are available at the conference website.
