Potomac water taxi                             NGSB2Don Scott, NBB Director of Sustainability & NBF Advisor Presents at the 2018 National Biodiesel Conference and Expo


Biodiesel Ferries on the Potomac River. The National   Biodiesel Foundation is working with the Greater Washington Region Clean Cities Coalition (GWRCCC) and the Potomac River Boat Company to introduce environmentally friendly biodiesel in ferries. Biodiesel reduces risks associated with marine fuel use and noise and air pollution. Read more

NBF helped raise money for Next Generation Scientist for Biodiesel to attend and participate in the National Biodiesel Conference & Expo. This scholarship provides funds to offset travel, food and lodging while at the event. This year’s goal was to sponsor five or more students.

NYC Biodiesel Tour for Congressional Staff. The New York City Tour is an educational opportunity providing congressional staffers and government officials with current information on biodiesel and Bioheat. Briefings will be conducted by state and national experts, technology providers, fleet managers and sustainability officers experienced with biodiesel use. The tour is sponsored by HERO BX, Incobrasa Industries, Mid-America Biofuels, Minnesota Soybean Processors, National Biodiesel Board, Renewable Energy Group, Inc., and Western Iowa Energy.  Read more

European Biodiesel Board Project. This past summer with funding from NBF, Professor Wally Tyner of Purdue University compared the European GLOBIOM land use model to Purdue’s GTAP model. Tyner presented the findings to the EU Parliament, with the aim of improving GLOBIOM and providing powerful data to the two EU houses currently negotiating crop-based biofuel mandates. Tyner identified differences between the models that could reveal ways to improve both models as research continues— particularly in the way each calculates livestock protein sensitivities.

Purdue GTAP Model Updates. Purdue’s GTAP model was updated with NBF funding. The improvements were presented for the first time in a recent article in Biotechnology for Biofuel (2017). This paper reviews the history of the GTAP model and recent database modifications. The results show that all the changes in the global economy and agricultural sectors cause biofuels land use change (LUC) and associated emissions can be quite different using the 2011 database versus 2004.
