“We are excited to have SCB join NBB’s membership to help advance the biodiesel industry,” said Brad Shimmens, Director of Operations and Membership. “SCB has sponsored the National Biodiesel Conference in the past, and we are pleased that they see the value NBB brings to the industry and that they are expanding that partnership into becoming a member. We look forward to working closely together to promote America’s Advanced Biofuel from coast to coast.”
SCB Group is the world’s largest biofuel brokerage group of companies and is a market leader in many carbon reduction credit markets such as RINS and LCFS in the United States. As brokers, SCB connects buyers and sellers across the globe. Through increasing price transparency and lower trading costs, SCB serves the commodities industry and promotes the adoption of low carbon fuel and practices.
“We have established successful partnerships in the biodiesel sector for over 10 years,” said Kevin McGeeney, CEO of SCB Brokers. “We are keen to promote the industry and the work of NBB, and we feel we have much to contribute in terms of ideas, knowledge, and experience.”
Made from an increasingly 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. NBB is the U.S. trade association representing the entire biodiesel value chain, including producers, feedstock suppliers, and fuel distributors, as well as the U.S. renewable diesel industry.
