Advanced and cellulosic biofuels are an important part of America’s energy portfolio. Because they are produced from renewable sources like plants, algae, waste, animal fats and other forms of biomass – not petroleum or fossil fuels – advanced biofuels complement rising domestic oil and natural gas production.

In a world with changing strategic alliances, a skyrocketing population and increasing demand for lifestyles that require more energy, the U.S. needs a diverse and secure energy futurethat includes advanced renewable fuels.

The Advanced Biofuels Association (ABFA) represents an industry that is here today and investing for tomorrow. Our members helped meet last year’s target set by the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) of 2.25 billion gallons of advanced biofuel consumption in the U.S. and are poised to supply significantly more in the future. Several ABFA members have built or purchased commercial-scale plants that will produce renewable gallons qualifying as advanced and/or cellulosic under the RFS this year. Many other companies are either breaking ground or plan to have commercial plants in operation by 2015.

In 2019, ABFA launched an initiative including member companies from ABFA as well as outside groups to address regulatory barriers preventing commercialization of advanced and cellulosic biofuels and bioproducts. The Coalition to Address Removal of Regulatory Impediments ("CARRI")  is focused on resolving and removing unnecessary interpretive and regulatory impediments stemming from the implementation of the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS). 

Building Better Fuels. Today.

Drop-in and cellulosic biofuel technology is moving from the laboratory to reality – and Advanced Biofuels Association members are designing, purchasing and building the commercial plants needed to supply America with advanced fuels from renewable sources.
