“We couldn’t be more excited about having the National Advanced Biofuels Conference & Expo return to Omaha,” said Tim Portz, vice president of content at BBI International. “Two years ago we held this event here because there was an incredible density of next-generation and advanced biofuels activity within 200 miles of Omaha and it still holds true today. Our comprehensive agenda will cover the progress towards the commercialization of advanced biofuels and the innovations occurring in the industry.”

Attendees and exhibitors will include hundreds of professionals in key sectors including biofuels and biobased chemicals production; agribusiness; petroleum and petrochemical refining; pulp and paper milling; food processing; waste management; finance; aviation; government/military; research and academia.
