Overview<br /><ul><li>Blue Northern Energy’s (BNE) business model is designed to maximize the use of innovation within the bio-fuel industry while bringing to bear a unique perspective on how to profitably manage a biodiesel production facility.
This will be achieved by designing and operating new biodiesel facilities and retrofitting existing biodiesel facilities worldwide that are equipped with the STT Biodiesel Production Units.
In addition, BNE will sublicense STT Biodiesel Production Units internationally to third-party facilities in exchange for equity, license fees, and/or royalties. </li></ul>3<br />
Background<br />National Trail Biodiesel Group (NTBG) was formed in 2001 as an agricultural coalition in southern Illinois. <br />In 2009, NTBG sold the development work to Blue Northern Energy after NTBG had conducted several feasibility studies and due diligence was completed by equity firms, government organizations, and private investors. <br />Mission<br /><ul><li>Build a team of industry leaders in the fields of energy, finance and technology to innovate the renewable energy markets worldwide by providing energy solutions for businesses and communities.
