Biofuels Use and Promotion Study

Archived: 12/31/2010

A special commission was established to investigate and develop a strategy to increase the use of advanced biofuels as alternatives to conventional carbon-based fuels by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, its agencies and political subdivisions, and regional transit authorities. The commission will consider methods such as financing mechanisms including grants, loans, and other incentive programs for group procurement of advanced biofuels, vehicles using advanced biofuels, distribution infrastructure, and technical assistance. The commission must report the results of its investigation and study and its recommendations to the Massachusetts legislature. (Reference Massachusetts Session Law 206, 2008)
