The U.S. Congress has mandated an aggressive expansion of cellulosic and advanced biofuels, through the latest Renewable Fuel Standard (RFSII) and other measures. Ethanol will remain a substantial component of the U.S. fuel supply, but RFSII assumes that ethanol will be eclipsed by massive amounts of next-generation fuels.

The Platts Next Generation Biofuels conference will bring together the leaders in the industry to evaluate the potential for biofuels, both ethanol and next-generation fuels. The conference focuses on the business outlook for biofuels in the U.S. fuel distribution system, and includes a dialog among the key players – the ethanol industry, advanced biofuel developers, federal policy makers, and petroleum refiners.

Three main areas to be covered this year:

• Policy – how will policy drivers change after RFS II?
• Technology – where are the breakthroughs likely to come, and in what time frame? Will industrial biochemicals and value added products lead the way? The big questions are how much can be produced, in what time frame, and at what cost.
• Petroleum and biofuels supply – what level of biofuels will enter the market? How will the petroleum industry respond?
