BBI Day 1 (officially)

So the SBS Conference finished up very positively. In fact on the final day Joe Jobbe from the National Biodiesel Board stopped by and announced a bomb shell to the room.

The NBB will be forming a "Sustainability Taskforce" and wants direct involvement with the SBS organizers. As you can imagine the emotions were mixed in the room. Regardless those who have been pushing this boulder up hill since long before biodiesel was thought as of a mainstream fuel considered it a huge victory.

Exciting stuff.

Also worth noting. I swung through the exhibition hall and prior to its official opening (I love seeing stuff without sales people there to skew my initial reaction). There was far more algae than last year. I counted at least three closed system algae reactors on display in the trade show alone.

Cool stuff to look at. Its an exciting time to be in this industry.
