Houston, Texas – ASTM International has officially announced Scott Fenwick, technical director for the National Biodiesel Board (NBB), the next chairman of the Committee D02 on Petroleum Products, Liquid Fuels, and Lubricants.  

“I am honored to serve as chair of this important ASTM committee that is dedicated to ensuring high quality standards for petroleum products, fuels and lubricants, including biodiesel,” said Fenwick.  “I would like to thank Randy Jennings, with the State of Tennessee, for his leadership, commitment, and guidance as the outgoing chair.”

Fenwick was elected in October, and officially announced as chair at the DO2 committee meetings in Houston, Texas last week.  His term will begin January 1, 2018.  According to ASTM, Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants was formed in 1904. Approximately 1,000 members attend the five days of technical meetings twice a year. The committee, with a current membership of approximately 2,650 global industry professionals and experts, has jurisdiction over nearly 850 standards. These standards have, and continue to play, a preeminent role in all aspects relating to the standardization quality of fuels and lubricants. For more information on the work of committee D02, watch this video.

“I have no doubt that Scott will provide outstanding leadership as chair of ASTM Committee DO2,” said National Biodiesel Board CEO Donnell Rehagen. “Scott’s unique understanding of the fuels industry and wealth of experience in all aspects of the business will serve ASTM very well.”

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. Biodiesel supports roughly 64,000 jobs across the United States. 

The National Biodiesel Board is the U.S. trade association representing the biodiesel and renewable diesel industries, including producers, feedstock suppliers and fuel distributors.
