Research Priorities Resulting From 2016 Sustainability Workshop

Mar 02, 2017
The National Biodiesel Foundation held our second biennial Indirect Land Use Change and Sustainability Workshop at Monsanto in St. Louis, Missouri on September 21, 2016.  This workshop series sprung from the inspiration of Beth Calabotta who has served as a knowledgeable and trusted advisor to production agriculture and especially the biodiesel industry.  Thirty experts representing multiple national laboratories, industries, and academic institutions presented the latest improvements to lifecycle analysis and discussed next steps to further improve GHG emissions modeling.  The outcome of this workshop is a priority list of projects that are expected to improve biodiesel’s GHG benefit relative to fossil fuels.
