Clean Fuels Conference United as One

“United as One” is the theme of the inaugural Clean Fuels Conference, January 23-26, 2023 in Tampa, Florida where the role of biodiesel, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel in the national commitment to decarbonization take center stage.

Formerly the National Biodiesel Conference & Expo, the event’s rebranding reflects the founding organization’s name change last year from the National Biodiesel Board to Clean Fuels Alliance America, recognizing the evolution and expansion of the clean fuels offerings for heavy-duty transportation and new markets like rail, shipping and aviation.
