At EEE: Exploring Biodiesel

“XBX Exploring Biodiesel: An Eye on the Horizon,” a touring seminar created by the National Biodiesel Board, will be on the program of the 2019 Eastern Energy Expo at The Hotel Hershey, Hershey, Pa. The presentation is scheduled for Monday, May 20.

“At a time when policymakers are placing constraints on fossil fuels, biodiesel presents a path forward which will allow us to stay in business,” said Eric DeGesero, executive vice president, Fuel Merchants Association of New Jersey, representing Eastern Energy Expo.

This is the second year that NBB has rolled out “Exploring Biodiesel,” a touring seminar designed to educate diesel fuel distributors and end users on the benefits and opportunities that biodiesel offers. This year’s event, which is again being offered complimentary to attendees, will examine biodiesel’s growing prominence in the liquid fuels supply chain. From both technical and practical standpoints, attendees will learn how biodiesel is being utilized in the 21st century energy landscape, and how it can provide a valuable lifeline for diesel fuel distributors and end users facing a wave of carbon-neutral policies.

XBX organizer Paul Nazzaro, petroleum liaison for NBB, says the event is aimed at suppliers and end users of diesel fuel who are interested in the operational, environmental, and cost benefits of biodiesel, and in learning how this market-ready, carbon-neutral fuel can empower their organizations as state and federal carbon reduction policies take effect over the next 10 to 30 years.

DeGesero said that the program “will integrate more of the supply chain than just fuel distributors who have historically been the primary EEE attendees. By expanding the audience to include biodiesel suppliers and end users, we will provide a well-rounded educational experience on the rapidly changing landscape. Not only will attendees benefit from the formal program, they will have the opportunity to network with those who have already adopted biodiesel as a strategy.”

Attendees may register at for the May 20 program.

Eastern Energy Expo is an annual convention and trade show co-hosted by the Atlantic Region Energy Expo, the Oil & Energy Service Professionals and the Pennsylvania Petroleum Association. Sponsors and exhibitors will have access to providers of fuels and home comfort needs to millions of consumers in the Northeast.
