JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - The biodiesel industry is growing stronger with more organizations joining the National Biodiesel Board’s membership. The final months of 2018 and the start of 2019 have brought the addition of six organizations looking to make an impact in the biodiesel marketplace. These new companies range from biodiesel producers, to distributors, to commodity traders, who join the extensive and diverse organizations that make up NBB.
“I’m very excited to welcome each of these groups to our membership,” said NBB CEO Donnell Rehagen. “The continual growth and diversification of our organization reflects the direction that the industry is heading. I’m sure that our membership will benefit from these new partnerships, and we look forward to working closely together to continue promoting America’s Advanced Biofuel from coast to coast.”
NBB’s newest members include:
- Novozymes North America – a global leader in biodiesel solutions, producing a wide range of industrial enzymes and microorganisms.
- New England Fuel Institute – a trade association focused on strengthening and advancing the liquid heating fuels market.
- Rio Valley Biofuels, LLC – a biodiesel producer and distributor from the southwest who looks to provide affordable biodiesel to businesses and farmers in the southwestern states.
- ENI Trading and Shipping – a commodity trader that strives for excellence in the trading of crude oils and refined products.
- DEASYL SA – an international supplier of technologies and catalysts for the petroleum industry.
- Genuine Bio-Fuel Inc. – a biodiesel producer from Florida who strives for greater efficiencies in production, creating higher yields at a lower cost.
Made from an increasingly diverse mix of resources such as recycled cooking oil, soybean oil and animal fats, biodiesel is a renewable, clean-burning diesel replacement that can be used in existing diesel engines without modification. It is the nation’s first domestically produced, commercially available advanced biofuel. NBB is the U.S. trade association representing the entire biodiesel value chain, including producers, feedstock suppliers, and fuel distributors, as well as the U.S. renewable diesel industry.
