About the Summit

SEPTEMBER 15-17, 2020

The Biodiesel Production Technology Summit is a new forum designed for biodiesel and renewable diesel producers to learn about cutting-edge process technologies, new techniques and equipment to optimize existing production, and efficiencies to save money while increasing throughput and fuel quality. Produced by Biodiesel Magazine, this world-class event features premium content from technology providers, equipment vendors, consultants, engineers and producers to advance discussion and foster an environment of collaboration and networking through engaging presentations, fruitful discussion and compelling exhibitions with one purpose—to further the biomass-based diesel sector beyond its current limitations. From frontend pretreatment to backend quality measures and everything in between, this premiere event covers the technology gamut, leaving producers with practical solutions to their specific needs. Co-located with the International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo, the Biodiesel Production Technology Summit conveniently harnesses the full potential of the integrated biofuels industries while providing laser-like focus on processing methods that are sure to yield tangible advantages to biomass-based diesel producers. Registration is free of charge for all employees of biodiesel and renewable diesel production facilities, from operators and maintenance personnel to board members and executives.

In addition to spot-on technical presentations hand-picked by an abstract rating committee, the Biodiesel Production Technology Summit offers superb networking forums alongside the largest, most widely attended expo in the biofuels industry.

This year, the Biodiesel Production Technology Summit is co-located with the International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo (FEW). Since the FEW’s inception in 1995, the event has grown to 2,000-plus attendees and 300 exhibitors. The event draws industry professionals from every U.S. state and more than 30 countries. Upwards of 550 biofuels producers from 209 facilities all over the world attend the FEW each year. By co-locating these two events, it is truly the world’s largest gathering of biofuels producers.
