Top U.S. States Promoting Biofuels
Currently, there are around twenty seven states outside of California that have over eighty advanced biofuel companies. The top states and number of companies that are supporting biofuel are: eight in Illinois, six in Colorado, five in Texas and four in Iowa. E2 (Environmental Entrepreneurs) have created a state-by-state breakdown in a searchable map of the companies involved within the advanced biofuels industries. The site offers a kind of information clearinghouse on the methods that clean fuel companies are using to increase economic growth and the potentials for our domestic biofuel industry.
The facts sheets from E2 are indicating that in the next decade, the biofuel market could be worth over $60 billion and bring with it over 18,000 jobs. This could be accomplished within the twenty six biorefineries that are expected to be online by 2015. Other details included in Fuelinggrowth include the fact that advanced biofuels can be produced on sustainable levels without the mis-information of food competition. The farming community is discovering a number of revenue opportunities for the agricultural waste and new technologies are being developed to create cleaner fuels. This means that biofuel refineries are now appearing all over the country.

Here is a list of states I didn’t see on the list: New Jersey (shocking, because it’s full of waste), Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Georgia, Mississippi. Leave it to the Midwest and West Coast to figure it out.August 29th, 2013 at 10:58 pm
I am glad to see that states other than just California are into the biofuels game. I know, I know, California always gets the credit for being on the cutting edge, but I am happy to know others are in the running.April 25th, 2013 at 11:33 pm
We need to be researching all aspects of renewable and sustainable energies. Each area has a particular advantage, solar works in some places, hydro in others, biofuel in a different place. Some have cross overs.April 24th, 2013 at 7:02 pm
The future is in reusing what we produce, until the pollution outcome is zero and the energy output is high. We still have a long journey ahead of us as a global community.April 23rd, 2013 at 12:17 pm

Three cheers for the states that actually ‘got it’. They are showing that they are not only forward thinking but can make it work to their benefit.April 21st, 2013 at 11:20 am
Wow, didn’t know that the U.S. has 80 biofuel companies and that they can produce so much energy. Sure hope they build a few in my state.April 20th, 2013 at 9:49 am
