The Northeast Biofuels Collaborative works with agricultural, business, environmental, and labor organizations to establish the northeast as a leader in biofuel technology, production, and use. The Collaborative also serves as an information network and is fully equipped to educate the public, media, and elected officials about the economic and environmental benefits associated with the production and use of biofuels.

Northeast Oil Dependence
The northeast region is completely dependent on foreign sources of oil, resulting in the massive exportation of jobs and capital to oil producing and refining regions.

The Northeast Can Produce Biofuels
The northeast region can produce biofuel from native agricultural and waste materials, and can import additional feedstocks to support a robust biofuel industry. It can also lead the charge toward "second generation" biofuels.

Biofuels Create Jobs
A single mid-size ethanol plant creates about 40 new full-time jobs at the plant, and anywhere from 250-700 new full and part time jobs economy-wide.

Biofuels Reduce Dependence on Foreign Oil
Aggressive biofuel policies could reduce foreign oil dependence by 50-100 percent by 2025 while injecting billions of dollars into rural and "Clean Tech" economies every year.

Biofuels Reduce CO2 Emissions
The use of biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel already reduces CO2 emissions from cars and trucks. Some experts believe that we could cut transportation-related CO2 emissions by 80 percent with biofuels alone.
