7th Annual Biodiesel Summit Redefines Sustainability
Sustainable Biodiesel Summit Highlights
February 6 – February 7, 2010
Grapevine, TX — Biodiesel leaders from across the country met in Grapevine, Texas to discuss the status of sustainable biodiesel on February 7 and 7. 2010. After the collapse of oil prices, many recent investments in biodiesel operations are upside-down, and sustainability advocates worry that producers and consumers will cut costs by cutting corners.
The 7th Annual Sustainable Biodiesel Summit, brought together more than 70 community activists, backyard brewers, farmers, and other passionate individuals came together to discuss the future of sustainable, community-based Biodiesel. This exciting event was held at the Cross Timbers Winery, a beautiful location in the heart of Grapevine.
2010 marked the first year that the Sustainable Biodiesel Summit was held off site from the National Biodiesel Board Convention. The new setting gave a new more community-scale feeling to the event.
This year’s keynote speaker was Bill Holmberg, long time champion of biofuels and sustainable new wealth industry. Due to extreme weather in Washington D.C. he was unable to be there in person but gave his presentation via tele-link.
The Sustainable Biodiesel Summit expresses heartfelt thanks to the sponsors of the 2010 summit: Pacific Biodiesel, The Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance, The NBB and Organic Valley Farms. Thank you all for your support of this important event!
