Recently, the President of Advanced Biofuels Association (ABFA) Michael McAdams spoke at the House Agriculture Committee urging the members to let sound energy policy and sound science govern their biofuels policy. He also wanted the committee to pursue a technology neutral methodology in the next Farm Bill.
Michael added that the committee’s efforts to develop a Loan Guarantee program can help in the commercial usage of sophisticated biofuel technologies. Michael’s association welcomes the opportunity to prove the merits and values of next-generation green fuels, even as Congress examines steps such as incentives in order to boost the industry.
This appearance by Michael at the House Agriculture Committee was part of the two-day Bioenergy Forum. Member companies of ABFA namely Sapphire Energy, Solazyme, Osage Bio Energy and Amyris were present at the forum.
ABFA member companies represent the next-generation of renewable and advanced technologies which will help usher in a sustainable future.
