The National Biodiesel Board (NBB) announced it has hired Kate Shenk as Director of Regulatory Affairs. Kate comes to NBB from the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), where she led a regulatory affairs committee and developed analyses and comments on regulatory policies.
“I am pleased that Kate Shenk will be joining NBB as our new Director of Regulatory Affairs,” said NBB CEO Donnell Rehagen. “Kate brings extensive knowledge of the regulatory policies that shape the biofuels industry’s growth. Her addition to our Washington-based federal affairs staff will increase the biodiesel industry’s effectiveness in policy advocacy.”
The National Biodiesel Board is the U.S. trade association representing the biodiesel and renewable diesel industries, including producers, feedstock suppliers and fuel distributors. Headquartered in Jefferson City, Mo., NBB maintains a Washington office for federal affairs and work on regulatory issues surrounding international trade and the federal Renewable Fuel Standard.
Made from an increasingly diverse mix of resources such as recycled cooking oil, soybean oil and animal fats, biodiesel is a renewable, clean-burning diesel replacement that can be used in existing diesel engines without modification. It is the nation’s first domestically produced, commercially available advanced biofuel. NBB is the U.S. trade association representing the entire biodiesel value chain, including producers, feedstock suppliers, and fuel distributors, as well as the U.S. renewable diesel industry.
