The production of renewable biofuels and advanced biofuels in the U.S. still is in its infancy, with significant growth potential.
These fuels — made from living or previously living substances, such as agricultural products (soybeans, corn, sugar) and fast-growing algae — only represent eight percent of 2017 U.S. transporation fuel use, according to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Information Agency (EIA), despite significant advantages over fossil fuels, since they can be grown and replaced, and when converted to energy, produce fewer emissions which damage health, air quality, and the environment.
A wide variety of experts are available to help entrepreneurs and companies tap into the growth potential for biofuels. These experts are well grounded in biomass, bioenergy, energy crops, biodiesel technologies, bioethanol technologies, and renewable energy finance and costs. They include engineers with experience in front end engineering and design (FEED), as well as process, chemical, mechanical, electrical, civil, agricultural, environmental, and forensic engineering. Many also have specialized degrees in subjects including agricultural biotechnology, microbiology, biochemistry and other areas of expertise related to biofuels production.
