He works day-to-day with biodiesel plants, biodiesel suppliers, animal fats and grease suppliers, seed crushers, and elevators, and has taken a leadership role in the development of integrated risk management plans and “Feedstock Financing” programs for biodiesel plants. Nate works to establish risk management strategies to protect and lock in margins for both integrated crushing and standalone biodiesel facilities.
