Just like every year at the conference, attendees had lots of opportunities to support the National Biodiesel Foundation. One of those ways was a silent auction with some very unique items to bid on. With 60 items total, and things like a guitar signed by the Rolling Stones, the auction raised more than $20,000 for biodiesel research and education efforts.
The Foundation works closely with the National Biodiesel Board to address national issues affecting us all — cleaner air, greater economic development for rural communities, and enhanced national security through energy independence. Organized in 1994, the Foundation’s mission is to accomplish outreach, education, research and demonstration activities for the advancement of biodiesel.
