Conference Central Grand Opening | On a Mission: Overcoming Challenges to Engage in a New Era

Jan 22 — 8:30 AM-9:45 AM

Those who first developed biodiesel might have considered producing nearly 3 billion gallons a year akin to a “moon shot.” Yet more than a quarter of a century later, what started as a study at the University of Missouri has turned into a multi-billion-gallon industry that supports more than 60,000 jobs. How will we propel this fuel into the future? One thing is clear: federal policy will continue to be mission-critical. Top Washington political strategists will discuss navigating the 116th Congress, examining the November election outcome, the political balance, and how best to achieve the biodiesel industry’s policy priorities. You won’t want to miss this chance to Engage!
