The new European Biodiesel Board executive was elected into post for the term running from 2022-2024.
Dickon Posnett, from Argent Energy, was elected as EBB President, together with the two vice-presidents and eight board members.
Posnett is the director of corporate affairs for Argent Energy, where he helps to develop markets for renewable fuels through regulatory and legislative incentives across the EU.
He has been involved in the EBB for several years, both as a member of the EBB Executive Board, and as chair of the EBB Advanced Biodiesel Working Group. He also chairs the EBB REACH Consortium Steering Group in support of the EBB Secretariat.
Posnett replaced Kristell Guizouarn as EBB president. She was from Saipol and successfully completed two terms as EBB President over the last four years.
Guizouarn has had a very long and fruitful collaboration with the EBB, in which she held several responsibilities at technical and policy level.
Posnett said: “I am honoured by the confidence of EBB members in electing me to this post. Alongside my fellow board members, we will be working with the EU and Member States to deliver the huge carbon savings in transport that this sector is capable of.
“Biodiesel from all sustainable raw materials is a key component for decarbonisation of the energy mix in Europe, and as development of other technologies is pushed to deliver, so must this sector be pushed by policy over the next decades to displace fossil fuel in hard to decarbonise sectors like heavy-duty vehicles, aviation and maritime.”
