NBB Technical & Operations Creates Biodiesel Industry Foundation

By | April 15, 2009
Without the National Biodiesel Board's Technical and Operations program, biodiesel as we know it would not exist. Biodiesel as the cleaner burning alternative to petroleum diesel, biodiesel as the fuel recognized and formalized as operational in most diesel engines, and biodiesel as recognized by major customers and by the ASTM wouldn't exist. Securing ASTM blend specifications and working to improve those standards is a critical role of NBB's Technical and Operations effort.

The program works to reduce or eliminate technical barriers to biodiesel sales and serves as the primary industry leader measuring biodiesel's benefits. Technical and Operations includes educating key decision makers, overseeing fuel quality efforts, building industry credibility and coordinating industry, academia, and government agencies.

Technical and Operations works to stay ahead of industry trends, questions, and challenges and to offer sound technical guidance to facilitate continued industry growth and strength. Their priorities include: maintaining and improving ASTM standards, providing technical data to ensure fuel legitimacy, securing positive B20 position statements from OEMs, and encouraging B20 in future engine designs.

This program draws on the foremost thinkers in engineering, chemistry, physics, mechanics the list is endless and the depth of resources infinite. The critical link is the NBB.

NBB's Technical and Operations program coordinates technical programs among stakeholders to help ensure limited resources are divided across industry priorities, to eliminate duplication, and to provide the critical technical direction required to maintain biodiesel's standing as a viable alternative fuel.
