Researchers and stakeholders met in Kansas City to focus on opportunities to further increase the already highly sustainable production of biodiesel, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel.
Dozens of researchers and stakeholders met in Kansas City in November to focus on opportunities to further increase the already highly sustainable production of biodiesel, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel. Presentations were grouped into three areas: agriculture, fuel production, and reporting of benefits. Researchers present included Jenny Frank, a doctoral student at the State University of New York (SUNY) who is in phase two of a study quantifying the cumulative greenhouse gas emissions and financial viability of heavy duty transportation pathways in northeast U.S. She explained the study "is also considering vehicle, battery and operating costs and social costs for revenue and hauling rates in each scenario".
In 2022, NBF looks to collaborate with the broader agricultural and biofuel sector on cross-cutting to slash supply chain emissions. Working closely with Clean Fuels Alliance America Director of Environmental Science Matt Herman, NBF is supporting this research to help the industry reach short and long term sustainability goals.
