Biodiesel & Bioheat Forum

Biodiesel & Bioheat ForumThis week the Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council conducted a first ever event in Mankato, MN. The event, “Biodiesel 2015 & Beyond: A Biodiesel/Bioheat Forum,” brought together biodiesel industry market developers, researchers and a number of representatives of east coast oil heat and fuel companies. The open forum is provided an educational look at what’s going on in the biodiesel industry and the work being done to develop bioheat as a good heating fuel option for the northeast.

The program was divided into two sessions moderated by Tom DiBacco, broadhead. In the first session we heard from Paul Nazzaro, Nazzaro Group, NBB Petroleum Liaison, providing an overview of biodiesel markets. He is followed by John Wenzel, FC Stone, who talked on emerging markets. Next up was John Huber, National Oilheat Research Alliance and Michael Trunzo, New England Fuel Institute who spoke about Bioheat and the evolution of Oil Heat.

There was no way to get a clean feed of the session audio but I recorded it anyway and did a little clean up on it. All interviews are fine though and several more will be posted by next week.
