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.
