Jefferson City, Mo. – The leading biodiesel industry trade association continues to grow stronger with more organizations joining the National Biodiesel Board’s membership. NBB welcomes the addition of four new organizations looking to make an impact in the biodiesel marketplace. These new companies range from feedstock producers, to distributors, to environmental consultants, who join the extensive and diverse organizations that make up NBB.
“NBB is fortunate to have a diverse group of talented organizations within our membership who are passionate about moving this industry forward as a collective,” said NBB CEO Donnell Rehagen. “I’m happy to welcome these new partners, as their addition reflects the continued growth of our industry. Our members ensure that biodiesel and renewable diesel remain the top choice for diesel engines nationwide. I look forward to working alongside them, and all our members, to continue promoting America’s Advanced Biofuel from coast to coast.”
NBB’s newest members include:
- Louisiana Soybean Grain Research and Promotion Board – A feedstock producer organization representing Louisiana soybean growers, dedicated to the state’s most important production and marketing issues.
- Sack Energy Co. – A wholesale and commercial energy distributor working for more than 100 years who is committed to sustainability, superior service, and environmental stewardship.
- Barr Engineering Co. – An engineering and environmental consulting agency providing service across the Midwest, throughout the Americas, and around the world.
- Broco Oil – A veteran-owned fuel distributor located in New England with two rail served terminals which will soon be receiving and distributing biodiesel.
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.
