For the past several years, the NWBN has been delivering Education Forums and community outreach events promoting the benefits and use of Biodiesel fuel. As we start this new year, we want to take time to evaluate our effectiveness and assess what programs our biodiesel community would like the NWBN to undertake in the coming year and beyond.

The State of Biodiesel
After taking a beating in 2010 because of the expiration of the Biodiesel Blender's credit, the US Biodiesel industry is finally picking up some steam again. According to this article, the industry is on track to nearly double the amount of biodiesel produced in this country for 2011.
Fuel quality is a critical issue in any vehicle. How do we know that the fuel we buy for our vehicles is of high quality and will not cause problems, and also maximize performance? How is quality ensured in production and distribution? What does the state do to ensure quality? What is involved in testing biodiesel?

Are local and state governments using biodiesel fuel to lower their carbon footprints? If so, who is using biodiesel fuel, how much are they using, and whom are they purchasing from? How are these decisions made and why?
