WASHINGTON, July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Advanced Biofuels Association, ABFA, released this morning the first in a series of InfoGraphics titled Advanced Biofuels – A Matter of National Security on its website, The ABFA series comes at the start of a milestone-making couple of weeks for America's domestic biofuels industry that will have ABFA President Michael McAdams testifying before the House Energy and Commerce Committee; the Department of Energy hosting its annual conference Biomass 2012: Confronting Challenges, Creating Opportunities – Sustaining a Commitment to Bioenergy; executives of the ABFA member companies meeting in Washington, D.C.; and the Navy's demonstration of the power of its carrier strike force fueled by advanced biofuels.

ABFA President Michael McAdams said as he launched the new Biofuels InfoGraphics series, "This is about Washington making smarter investments that don't sacrifice one energy sector for another and delivering the best results for tax-payer dollars spent while ultimately strengthening America's national security.  It's hard to argue with the facts of today's success of America's domestic advanced biofuels industry as we're moving from the beaker to the barrel in record time."

"Our real world commercial success has been significantly helped by the continued partnership and commitment with the federal government and through policies like the Renewable Fuels Standard, the RFS."   

"ABFA's series of InfoGraphic material demonstrates DOD's strategic move to advanced biofuels is truly a matter of national security. As one of the world's largest consumers of fuel, DOD and our national security are at the mercy of the market just as much as we are when we pull up to the gas station."

As a leading voice for America's domestic biofuels industry, the Advanced Biofuels Association, ABFA, represents companies deploying advanced and renewable technologies that are helping drive America's new economy by creating jobs, reducing our dependence on foreign oil while fueling a sustainable future for the world. A national organization based in Washington, D.C., the ABFA supports federal investment while encouraging public policies that are consistent, technology neutral, utilize sustainable feedstocks and offer subsidy parity.  For more information
