NBB celebrates 10 years in green office space with ceremony

By The National Biodiesel Board | September 10, 2018

The National Biodiesel Board celebrated 10 years in its current Jefferson City, Missouri, office Sept. 10. The NBB commemorated the decade of growth and milestones with a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony.

“The National Biodiesel Board was started here in Jefferson City 25 years ago,” said CEO Donnell Rehagen. “This building has served NBB for the last 10 years, allowing us to grow our industry across the nation.” 

In 2008, NBB moved into its home in Jefferson City after remodeling a previously vacant building on the east side of town. The office itself was designed with sustainability in mind, with energy-efficient indoor lighting, recycled carpet and solar-powered outdoor lights. NBB wanted to follow biodiesel’s lead with clean, green energy. Since moving into its celebrated space, the biodiesel industry has made significant strides and continues to see progress each year.

The NBB also celebrated its 25th anniversary this year. These two milestone events highlight the phenomenal growth of the biodiesel industry. What started as a study at the University of Missouri has turned into a nearly 3-billion-gallon industry that supports more than 64,000 jobs.

“NBB has come a long way since our humble beginnings, but you can still find us here in the heart of Missouri,” Rehagen added. “The staff within these walls continues to strive for excellence, growth and promotion of a quality, sustainable fuel.”
