National Biodiesel Board Joins Diesel Technology Forum

December 19, 2012

The National Biodiesel Board, which represents more than 260 U.S. and international companies that produce and distribute renewable biodiesel fuel, is the newest allied member of the Diesel Technology Forum.

DTF is a non-profit organization that promotes the use of the most modern clean diesel technologies in the United States.

The National Biodiesel Board is a nonprofit trade association dedicated to coordinating the biodiesel industry and educating the public about the fuel.

NBB membership is made up of state, national, and international feedstock and processor organizations; biodiesel producers and suppliers; fuel marketers and distributors; and technology providers.

"Many people do not realize that today's new technology diesel engines with ultra low sulfur biodiesel blends provide tailpipe emissions as clean or cleaner than natural gas or gasoline, while providing superior fuel economy, horsepower, and durability," says Steve Howell, technical director for the National Biodiesel Board.

"In addition, when you combine the increased efficiency diesel engines with the low carbon nature of an advanced biofuel like biodiesel, new technology diesel engines are positioned to become the clean, green technology of the future."
