The 2009 Collective Biodiesel Conference, dubbed "the national conference for home brewers," will be held July 31 through Aug. 2 at American University in Washington, D.C. The annual event was launched in 2006 in Golden, Colo., and has been hosted by the Colorado School of Mines for the past three years. This is the first year the show will be held outside of Colorado.

The keynote speaker is Josh Tickell, biodiesel book author and director of the "Fuel" film, formerly known as "Fields of Fuel," which won a Sundance Film Festival award in 2008. A screening of the film will occur on Friday, July 31, at 7pm. A question and answer period will follow the film.

The schedule includes presentations on topics such as restaurant grease collection, mini-batch making, home brew case studies, growing and crushing your own oilseeds for biodiesel production, and a state of the algae report, along with much more. To register or to view the agenda, visit
