A Maryland-based organization is promoting the education, acceptance and use of advanced biofuels.

advance biofuels“The goal of Advanced Biofuels USA is to show the American people, decision-makers and opinion leaders that US farmers and researchers together can produce sustainable and economical biofuels that will directly replace all types of transportation fuels including gasoline and jet fuel.” said founder Joanne Ivancic.

Advanced Biofuels USA was founded last year and earlier this year decided to concentrate the organization’s focus on educational rather than lobbying activities. “We want to make sure the public hears the stories of farmers, foresters, processors, and researchers involved with advanced biofuels,” Ivancic says. “Development of advanced biofuels is not only essential to meeting the challenge of ‘20 by 20’ but more important, is critical to rebuilding the US economy.”

The organization has developed a three-part Advanced Biofuels Primer, available on their website, that provides simple explanations of what advanced biofuels are, why they are important, what key laws and regulations have been passed and implemented to encourage and promote the development of advanced biofuels, and much more. The primer even provides information for teachers and students to use for school projects, as well as advanced research suggestions.
