Regional, one-day seminars designed to educate fuel wholesalers, distributors, retailers, marketers, fleets, and municipalities on the benefits and opportunities of biodiesel are being held in various cities around the country. The first was in Boston, Mass., on June 12., and four more are scheduled.
The sessions are designed to provide an understanding of biodiesel’s place in today’s liquid fuels supply chain, and to learn how the fuel can be leveraged not only as a cleaner-burning, renewable complement to diesel fuel, but to increase market share and enhance an organization’s brand, the NBB says. The sessions provide a look at the latest petroleum industry trends as well as insights into how to utilize biodiesel to ensure optimum fuel performance.
Upcoming seminars run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in: Philadelphia, July 18, Sheraton Valley Forge Hotel; Los Angeles, Aug. 7, Long Beach Marriott; Portland, Ore., Aug. 9, Billy Frank, Jr. Conference Center; Cleveland, Sept. 18, DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown – Lakeside.
