Biofuels technology is growing throughout the country.

The Eastern Central region of the United States is one of two regions with the best potential for near and long-term development of biofuels.

Feedstocks include: Perennial grasses, sweet sorghum, crop residues, soybeans and woody biomass. Based on feedstock and land, infrastructure and demand, this region is key in implementing a successful biofuels market.

By 2022, this area is expected to contribute nearly 44 per cent of biofuels production needed to meet  the Renewable Fuel Standards (RFS2).

Here is a U.S. Department of Energy snapshot of current fuel station trends for biofuels production and availability.
