WASHINGTON, Jan. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As President Barack Obama prepares to deliver his annual State of the Union Address, leaders of some of the top biofuels companies in the country are offering their thoughts on the state of America's biofuels industry in a special episode of the Advanced Biofuels Association's Better Fuels Moment online video series. http://youtu.be/kHl_mXpX_1Q

The episode features Joel Velasco, senior vice president of Amyris; Jack Huttner, executive vice president, commercial and public affairs of Gevo; and Michael McAdams, president of the Advanced Biofuels Association, ABFA.

McAdams noted that the special episode emphasizes that, "Washington now has a real opportunity to invest in clean energy fuels, smarter investments based on performance, not a lifetime of subsidized handouts from Washington.  This opportunity can strengthen America's energy security while creating jobs here at home, today." 

ABFA: The Advanced Biofuels Association (ABFA) is a national organization representing the new generation of advanced and renewable technologies that will help drive America's new economy by creating jobs, reducing our dependence on foreign oil and fossil fuels while fueling a sustainable future for the world.  The ABFA has quickly become a leading voice for America's domestic biofuels industry since it was established in 2009.

Based in Washington, D.C., the ABFA engages the federal government at all levels to secure a level playing field for its 40 member companies by encouraging public policies that are consistent, technology neutral, utilize sustainable feedstocks and offer subsidy parity. http://www.advancedbiofuelsassociation.com/
