Arrive early for the conference and visit a local sector initiative!

NNSP is excited to confirm the first of what we hope will be several site visits associated with our Pathways to Prosperity conference: a tour of the Marion Berry Renewable Energy Center at Mid-South Community College in West Memphis. Mid-South has built a state-of-the-art facility for an entire biofuels training, production, and testing ecosystem, including:

  • biodiesel microrefinery and ethanol distillery
  • fuel and oil analysis labs
  • small and large engine test labs
  • large chassis dynamometer for fleet testing
  • process control center

A shuttle will provide transportation to the Marion Berry Center from the conference hotel and back for those who need it, leaving at approximately 10am on November 14 and returning before the start of the opening plenary luncheon at noon.

Register for the conference and we will send you information on how to reserve your spot!
