Fueling the School:
Pennsylvania's First Intercollegiate Biodiesel Conference
April 3-4, 2009

In April 2009 representatives from two dozen schools, members of the biodiesel industry, and members of the general public attended Pennsylvania's first intercollegiate biodiesel conference hosted by the Dickinson College Biodiesel Project.

The conference began on Friday, April 3rd with tours of the Keystone Biofuels plant in Camp Hill, Pa. and the Dickinson College Farm in Boiling Springs, Pa. Then, after socializing at dinner in the Dickinson College dining hall, attendees gathered for the conference's keynote address given by Lyle Estill, co-founder of Piedmont Biofuels, and an inspirational leader behind the widely successful biodiesel programs at Piedmont Biofuels in Pittsboro, N.C. Mr. Estill's address used his own personal experience to highlight the realities of the biodiesel and biofuels industry in America and internationally. On Saturday morning the conference re-convened for a series of presentations, an open house at the Dickinson College Biodiesel Project, and a workshop on creating biodiesel.
