Biofuels get boost from clean energy revolution

The US Government has announced plans designed to boost the use of advanced biofuels through research, investment and the national Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

In a joint announcement made today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), United States Agriculture Department (USDA) and Department of Energy (DOE) said President Barack Obama had signed a memorandum for the three agencies to work together to make biofuels integral part of the Government's clean energy plan.

The DOE has announced a $786.5m injection from the Recovery Act to accelerate biofuels research and commercialisation.
