Biofuels could pay off for state: U.S. emphasizes research and use
"This truly has the potential to be one of those things that reshapes and revitalizes our economy that potentially comes along once every half-century to a century."
- Andy Miller, Indiana's director of agriculture
Washington, D.C., USA - Indiana's recent efforts to get into bioenergy could get a big boost from the federal government from a possible major expansion of support for biofuel research, production and mandated use.
That could mean millions of dollars coming into the state for science and technology jobs, increased income for the state's farmers and rural economies, as well as construction jobs from new biofuel plants and manufacturing jobs as more hybrid vehicles and biofuels are produced.
