Biofuel Research and Development Funding

The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA) administers the Alabama Research and Development Enhancement Fund (ARDEF) Program to encourage new and continuing efforts to conduct research and development activities within the state for the purpose of increasing employment opportunities, and products and services available to the citizens of Alabama. The production of biofuel not made in petroleum refineries and blended with purchased refined petroleum are eligible for ARDEF funding. For additional information, see the ADECA Energy Division website.
