About NGSB

Join the Next Generation GraphicThe next generation of science thought leaders will one day lead America’s energy efforts. And biodiesel, our nation’s only commercially available advanced biofuel, is front and center.

Managed by the National Biodiesel Board, the Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel is a no-cost student professional organization that fosters collaboration, networking, and career development. Professors are also encouraged to join.

Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel Share Innovative Research

Innovation. Environmental solutions. Climate leadership. This is the real-world impact of biodiesel-related research led by student scientists. Meet four students serving as the new co-chairs of the Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel, improving the world through science.
