November Education Forum: “The State of Biodiesel”

The State of Biodiesel

After taking a beating in 2010 because of the expiration of the Biodiesel Blender’s credit, the US Biodiesel industry is finally picking up some steam again. According to this article, the industry is on track to nearly double the amount of biodiesel produced in this country for 2011.

On the other hand, there are many (including some in the industry) who think that Biodiesel has an uncertain future (check out this article in this month’s Biodiesel Magazine) due to controversy about ILU (indirect land use), Food vs Fuel, Big Oil politics, and the public’s lack of enthusiasm for any subsidies on their dime…

So what is the state of Biodiesel in this neck of the woods? Is it recovering? Has it recession-proofed itself? Or has it found other markets to help mitigate the vagaries of the market, and congressional weathervaning?

The NW Biodiesel Network’s November Education Forum is pleased to present a panel of representatives from industry and government to discuss the State of Biodiesel, and answer your questions. Our panel will include:

WA – John Plaza, Imperium Renewable
OR – Gavin Carpenter, Sequential Pacific Biodiesel
Government – Peter Moulton, WA Department of Commerce

Join us to learn about the State of Biodiesel and get your questions answered! 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, Seattle Phinney Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N, Seattle WA 98103.

Cost is Free. Information, including speaker biographies, at www.nwbiodiesel.org/.
