December 10, 2012, Rotterdam, NL – In a recent survey conducted with bioenergy leading industry experts ahead of the 8th annual World Biofuels Markets Congress & Exhibition, 51% of those who responded rated their government’s policy as supportive, while 15% rated them as very supportive.

Alongside this there were a number of other interesting findings.

“In spite of some less than stellar performances of companies that have floated in the past 2 years, it’s positive to hear that 46% of you expect to see more biofuels industry IPOs in the next 12 months,” said WBM’s organizers.

28% of those who responded rated demand as the number one driver for the biofuels industry, closely followed by policy. 34% of those polled think the U.S. has the most potential for producing commercial scale advanced biofuels.
