By donating to Advanced Biofuels USA, you can help make a difference in how the world moves. Advanced Biofuels USA, a nonprofit educational organization, advocates for the adoption of advanced biofuels as an energy security, economic development, military flexibility and climate change mitigation/pollution control solution. Our main tool for achieving our mission is this web site, a one-stop-shop library to enhance the understanding, development and use of advanced biofuels.  Articles and materials on the site range from links to scientific studies and industry analysis to teaching materials for students of all ages.  It includes lists of US and International university/college programs involved in advanced biofuels study and research as well as companies involved with biofuels and advanced biofuels. Of particular interest is our Biofuels Basic section, including tips for growers and investors, as well as an overview of basic information about biofuels and advanced biofuels. People from all over the world, from all walks of life, use this valuable resource.  Please help us continue to make this essential information available at no charge to this wide audience.  DONATE Now!  Just click on the golden DONATE button at the top of the page.

RIGHT NOW, advanced biofuels research struggles in the Valley of Death between promising lab results and financing of commercialization step-ups. RIGHT NOW, the future of advanced biofuels throughout the world is threatened by unscientific fear-mongering that feeds on real concerns about the adequacy of our planet to support its population with sufficient food and power. RIGHT NOW, people are coming to the Advanced Biofuels USA web site from around the world (60,000 page views/week)

to LEARN about new technological developments in crop research, agronomy and agricultural best practices, feedstock processing, transportation, distribution and marketing; and the  companies and organizations involved with them;
