Commercializing Next Generation Fuels

The future of the biofuels industry lies with advanced biofuels. Key policies at the federal level encourage the transition to advanced biofuels and industry progress means that commercial-scale production will begin in 2014. Advanced biofuels promise significantly lower GHG emissions that conventional biofuels (and even lower than fossil fuels). GPI is working to assist in the commercialization of advanced biofuels by advocating for the continuation of key federal policies and the creation of supportive state policies, engaging with stakeholders to encourage the sustainable production of bioenergy feedstocks (like corn stalks and switchgrass), and educating policymakers about the advances made by industry to bring advanced biofuels to commercial-scale.
