It’s time to start thinking National Biodiesel Conference 2007. I’m guessing that’s why we’ve seen a big increase in the number of visitors here to the Biodiesel Conference Blog.
I know we haven’t posted anything since the 2006 Conference but that’s because this is a conference blog. That means that we’ll start posting some news and information leading up to the 2007 event and then it will get hot and heavy during the show.
So keep us on your radar as we get ready for an even bigger and better National Biodiesel Conference in 2007!
