BSBIOS participates in the National Biodiesel Conference in the USA, an event that inaugurates a new "Clean Fuel Era
Erasmo Carlos Battistella, CEO of BSBIOS, considers this a key moment for the future of the industry
The past year has presented an impressive array of business and policy decarbonization efforts in the U.S. transportation and home heating sectors toward a common goal of a better, cleaner future. The biodiesel and advanced debiofuels (aviation biokerosene - SAF and renewable diesel - HVO) industries are fully committed to that goal and will gather at the National Biodiesel Conference& Expo 2022 in Las Vegas from this Monday through January 20.
BSBIOS is the only Brazilian company member of the National Biodiesel Board (NBB) and will be present at the event with its commercial team led by CEO Erasmo Carlos Battistella. "This is a very important moment for biofuels worldwide and I am happy to participate in this event that sheds light on the debate that is taking place in the United States and that we are experiencing on a daily basis in Brazil," explains Battistella.
"With biofuels, we are challenged to find real solutions to reduce emissions in global mobility, but, at the same time, we are witnessing the decisions of some governments that seem to be going in the opposite direction, favoring fossil fuels," analyzes the CEO of the leading biodiesel company in Brazil and that is leading the Omega Green project, a mega complex in Paraguay with an estimated investment of US$ 1 billion, which will be the first second generation advanced biofuels plant (HVO and SAF) in the Southern Hemisphere.
The National Biodiesel Conference & Expo brings together stakeholders from all sectors to learn, do business and create strategies on how to meet the growing demand for clean fuels amidst rapid decarbonization efforts.
"This year, our industry celebrates its 30th anniversary, and with that, we will formally announce an organizational name change that capitalizes on the connected energies of everyone in the industry working together for a clean fuels future," said Donnell Rehagen, NBB CEO.
"The new name (cleanfuels.org) reflects the evolving and growing demand for all the products we develop - biodiesel, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel. Our association represents the companies that are producing the most sustainable fuels on the planet. This new name will position us for growth in the clean energy ecosystem and we will continue to build on our long-standing role as the voice of this sector to markets, stakeholders and policy makers.
The conference agenda will allow attendees to expand their knowledge of the industry and set themselves up for success in a rapidly changing world. Sessions include aspects on biodiesel, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel in the context of decarbonization challenges, and involve discussions on the growing demand for feedstock, expanding new markets, and the impacts of ESG management in the corporate world.
Made from an increasingly diverse mix of resources such as recycled cooking oil, soybean oil, and animal fats, biodiesel and renewable diesel are better and cleaner fuels that are available now for use in existing diesel engines without modification.
