It also gives a quick overview of the trends of biofuel production as well as policy options and state activities to encourage biofuel production and use.

According to the report: "There are now 43 states using production and/or application-based incentives to promote the production, distribution and adoption of biofuels. Applications incentives are the most popular: 41 states have incentives supporting biofuels applications, while 23 states provide some form of production incentive. Twenty-one states use both types of incentives." Read the full report to find out more - its an excellent resource.
