By | July 01, 2005
Ralston, Iowa-based biodiesel producer West Central Cooperative has achieved its BQ-9000 accreditation, according to the National Biodiesel Board (NBB). The SoyPower brand biodiesel is now certified under the National Biodiesel Accreditation Program, a voluntary fuel quality program adopted by the NBB and Biodiesel Association of Canada.

BQ-9000 is a quality assurance program that details procedures for fuel storage, handling and management aimed at ensuring fuel quality throughout the distribution system. "The quality of biodiesel is the cornerstone the industry will be built on," said Nile Ramsbottom, West Central's vice president of soy processing and nutrition. "BQ-9000 certification is the guarantee that quality will be there."
