RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, February 15, 2024 — BASF welcomed over 50 representatives from the canola and renewable fuels industries to the BASF Center for Sustainable Agriculture on February 6 for the Canola Renewable Fuels Summit. The summit featured speakers from BASF, S&P Global, ADM, Marathon Petroleum, U.S. Canola Association, North Dakota State University and the Canadian Oilseed Processors Association.
