Jan. 5, 2015 - Advanced biofuel companies in the U.S. and Canada are poised to more than double production over the next few years with the right policies in place, according to a new market analysis by the national nonpartisan business group Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2).

With a focus covering the U.S. and Canada, the latest E2 report is especially relevant to three states with clean fuels standards either on the books or under consideration: Oregon, California, and Washington state.

Additional report content includes:

*An info-graphic chart showing advanced biofuels aggregate production, forecasted through 2017;

*New information on hundreds of biofuels production facilities in the planning stages;


*Data on billions of dollars in new private investment into active advanced biofuel producers and value-chain companies, including top-line figures on biofuels investments in 2014 and the total dollar value of grants to advanced biofuels since 2007.
