AddDiesel group, biodiesel producers come together in fight against natural gas

The fight to be the most popular fuel for commercial trucks wages on between the natural gas and clean diesel factions, with alt-player biodiesel joining forces with the Diesel Technology Forum team.

AddTruckstop operators want their biodiesel back - and the $1-per-gallon tax credit

According to the real-time counter on the homepage of the National Biodiesel Board (NBB), it's been 108 days since the $1.00 per gallon biodiesel tax credit expired. With an entire industry stalled and no clear end to the biodiesel purgatory in sight, more and more groups are petitioning their legislators to bring the tax credit back. Most recently, the National Association of Truckstop Operators (NATSO) added its voice to the growing roar of angry alt-fuel proponents.

AddBiodiesel board announces sustainability principles

The National Biodiesel Board has completed it's annual conference meeting in San Francisco and one of the larger announcements are new rules for sustainable biodiesel. A Sustainability Task Force met during the event and developed and passed the principles that demonstrate their claimed commitments to climate change mitigation, human rights, food security, and respect for natural resources. Much different than soy-sourced biodiesel, sustainable biodiesel needs to meet the following long list of

AddNational Biodiesel Board considers All Things Biodiesel

Biodiesel information makes up a healthy percentage of our posts on AutoblogGreen, but if you're craving more, check out AllThingsBiodiesel, the new site set up by the National Biodiesel Board. The site was introduced at the recent National Biodiesel Conference.

AddWal-Mart might start using biodiesel in America's largest private truck fleet

There's an argument you sometimes hear from SUV fans that increasing the MPG rating of a Hummer by a little bit makes a bigger difference than increasing the MPG numbers on a fuel-efficient standard (i.e., non-hybrid) Civic. The idea is that Hummers use so much fuel to get around that changing them, the worst offenders, just a little bit can make a huge difference.

Add2006 U.S. biodiesel production triple that of 2005, ethanol up by 20 percent

Perhaps that prediction of a biodiesel glut will come true. The National Biodiesel Board (NBB) is certainly reporting we're making a lot more biodiesel, with the recent announcment that U.S. biodiesel production will likely triple in 2006, to 250 million gallons. Government incentives are the main reason for this growth, the NBB said, and the trend is expected to continue in 2007.

AddNew biodiesel specifications will keep particulate filters clean

By now, we know all about the new ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel widely available throughout the States, but where does biodiesel fuel stand in relation to new emissions policies and technologies?

AddAmandaAcrossAmerica checks out biodiesel

As part of AutoBlogGreen's continuing coverage of Amanda Congdon's coast to coast journey across America, I wanted to let you know about her crew's latest episode. As mentioned in ABG's interview with Amanda, they visited the Nation BioDiesel Board in Jefferson City, Missouri. The National Biodiesel Board is the national trade group for the biodiesel industry. Among other things they coordinate research and development for biodiesel nationally.

AddMaking orange green: UT makes its own biodiesel

Similar to Jacksonville's internal biodiesel production but on a smaller scale, the University of Tennessee is working on a self-sustained project of their own. Project leader Scott Curran, a senior engineering student, says they can produce 200 gallons of B20 in one week from leftover vegetable oil from the UT Dining Services which will be used in the campus' 11 facility service vehicles.

AddFind biodiesel fuel with a phone call

Can't find biodiesel fuel while traveling cross country? The National Biodiesel Board today launched a toll-free hotline to help truckers and motorists find retail pumps anywhere in the . The announcement was made at the Great American Trucking Show.

AddAustin, Texas has more B20 than your town

The National Biodiesel Board (NBB) would like everyone to know that there is more to Austin, Texas than live music: it's also the town with the most retail stores selling biodiesel (B20) in the United States. Coincidentally, there are twenty B20 pumps in Austin, most of them recently-biodieseled Shell stations. There are also three stations that sell either B100 or B99. The NBB estimates there are over 800 public biodiesel pumps across the country.

AddQuality biodiesel could mean doubled production soon

National Biodiesel Board executive director Joe Jobe told Illinois Farm Bureau directors that biodiesel production in 2006 should be 150 million gallons, double the 2005 amount. The catch is that this biodiesel has to be quality stuff, man. Low-quality fuel, like the thing in Minnesota with poor quality biodiesel, could discourage consumers from embracing the fuel as heartily as they otherwise would.
