California is the top market for biodiesel and renewable diesel, which generate about 45% of the state’s carbon credits each year. Speakers included Rebecca Baskins, Executive Director California Advanced Biofuels Alliance (CABA), Floyd Vergara, NBB Director of State Governmental Affairs, and Harry Simpson, President/ CEO Crimson Renewable Energy and SeQuential.
The National Biodiesel Foundation (NBF) hosted a group of congressional staffers on a virtual tour of biodiesel use in New York City (NYC). The event highlighted the theme Sustainable Biodiesel: Improving the Environment and Economy. In prior years NBF hosted in-person tours; this was the first virtual tour of its type. The event was designed to educate interested congressional staff about New York City’s use of biodiesel as a key part of meeting its environmental goals and how federal biodiesel policies are important to New York City.
