All eyes will be on Tampa Bay in the new year when the annual National Biodiesel Conference & Expo unveils "Vision 2020" at the Tampa Convention Center, January 21.

The largest gathering of North American biodiesel enthusiasts arrive in Florida on a roll with recent policy victories in Washington, DC, and California, as well as a heating oil industry that is partnering with producers to reduce pollution in the Northeast with the cleaner burning, renewable fuel.

"Last year at this time, U.S. biodiesel and renewable diesel producers faced an uncertain future," said Donnell Rehagen, CEO of the National Biodiesel Board.

"Thanks to our members and the support of the industry's coast-to-coast champions, we're rolling into the new year reinvigorated to deliver even more biodiesel to both our transportation and home heating fuel customers."

While celebrating the advancements in 2019, Rehagen said the focus at the conference will be to share a clear vision for what the biodiesel industry needs to accomplish in the years ahead.

"We have arrived at where we are because we recognized the importance of strategic planning and setting goals to continue to grow the industry," Rehagen said. "This is an opportunity to lay out a roadmap full of growth for the next ten years for a fuel that is -- more than ever -- better, cleaner, and available now coast-to-coast."

The conference offers an engaging lineup of speakers, with keynote speeches and roundtable discussions presented by industry experts.

Attendees will get new information on the latest vehicle technology, take a deep dive into the future of renewable fuels, and hear from expert speakers on environmental policy.
