Clean Fuels prepares to kick off 2023 conference in Tampa, Florida

Clean Fuels Alliance America will kick off the Clean Fuels Conference Jan. 23 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida.

The event runs from the afternoon of Jan. 23 through the morning of Jan. 26 and is expected to draw more than 725 registered participants, including agriculture interests, clean-fuel producers, marketers, end users and more.

This is the 20th annual industry conference—formerly known as the National Biodiesel Conference & Expo—but the first-ever Clean Fuels Conference.

“Companies can see the tide is turning and that consumers want to feel better about the purchase decisions they are making,” said Clean Fuels CEO Donnell Rehagen. “Low-carbon transportation fuels in planes, trains, ships and trucks will have to be a focus of their efforts. Cutting emissions is critical for companies that want to stay in business over the next decade, but it isn’t simply just a good business practice. It’s the right thing to do.”

The theme of the conference is “United As One,” highlighting the industry’s commitment to bring together stakeholders to build a sustainable-transportation future.

The clean-fuels industry has established a vision of producing 6 billion gallons per year of biodiesel, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) by 2030, which will generate benefits for the environment, domestic jobs, and energy security.

Highlights of the conference include:
