"About the Summit:
The Biodiesel Finance & Investment Summit has established itself as the
major gathering place where biodiesel developers, investors, lenders,
EPC contractors and others in the biodiesel finance & investment
community come to meet, gauge the current pulse of the deal-making

biodiesel deals successfully financed in the current market environment.
