The Biodiesel Finance & Investment Summit has established itself as the major gathering place for the biodiesel finance and investment community. The 2006 Summits were a tremendous success with the hallways jam-packed with industry and financial players discussing deals.

The biodiesel industry is continuing its rapid growth and the deal-making market is responding with its own developments. The 2007 Summit will provide a timely setting for the industry to gather again and take advantage of the latest opportunities in this dynamic environment.

The Summit brings together the leading developers, investors, lenders, EPC contractors and others in the biodiesel finance & investment community to share their perspectives on getting biodiesel deals successfully financed in 2007 and beyond. You will not only hear from this savvy group about the latest developments in the biodiesel finance and investment markets, but the Summit will also provide an outstanding opportunity to network with these and other players in the biodiesel finance and investment community and to accurately gauge the current pulse of the deal making market.

Pre-Summit Workshop:
The Keys to Making Your Project Financeable
The market is full of investors who are aggressively seeking to invest in biodiesel projects. Yet, strikingly, most biodiesel projects never achieve a successful financing. Why? Because the projects' sponsors have failed to think through and adequately address all the requirements that are needed to make a project financeable.

The workshop is designed to help you make your project one of the winners. It will examine the key pitfalls that cause financiers to reject projects and help you cover all the bases when preparing your financing proposal. It will cover the key elements that need to be addressed in your financing proposal and provide real-world insight into how the financial community will evaluate your project. You cannot rely on a generic feasibility study to determine whether your project is financeable. This workshop will give you the invaluable guidance that you can use to make your project stand tall.
