Renewable Energy Group (REG) CFO Chad Stone was recently elected as the new chairman for the National Biodiesel Board and last week he addressed the membership at the National Biodiesel Conference in Tampa.
While 2019 was a disastrous year for the industry, which saw REG having to shut down a plant, Stone is very optimistic about biodiesel going forward. “For biodiesel, this is our time to get back up,” said Stone. “We won’t be held down, we adapt, we grow and we fight. We are the future of energy and we won’t let anyone stand in our way.”
