WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Biodiesel Board (NBB)’s Chief Executive Officer Donnell Rehagen issued the following statement on the Senate confirmation of Bill Northey to be the Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services:

Bill Northey is eminently qualified for his post at the Agriculture Department. He will be an excellent representative of the agricultural economy and a true champion of biodiesel and renewable fuels. We look forward to working with Bill to defend and grow the job-creating Renewable Fuel Standard program.”

The National Biodiesel Board is the U.S. trade association representing the biodiesel and renewable diesel industries, including producers, feedstock suppliers and fuel distributors. Made from a diverse mix of resources such as recycled cooking oil, soybean oil and animal fats, biodiesel is a renewable, clean-burning diesel replacement that can be used in existing diesel engines without modification. It is the nation’s first domestically produced, commercially available advanced biofuel.
