The world-renowned Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni made 'Sette cani e un vestito, which translated means 'Seven reeds, one suit'. The piece shows the industrial scale use of Arundo donax for the production of viscose pre-World War II. Arundo donax is considered one of the most promising of the energy grasses for biomass supply for biofuels, due to the high tonnages that can be produced per acre. North Carolina is beginning to develop large acreages of Arundo for biofuels on hog lagoon sprayfields for cellulosic ethanol production.

http://www.biofuelscenter.org The Biofuels Center of North Carolina has the long-term task of developing a large-scale biofuels industry sector to reduce the state's dependence on imported petroleum. To make North Carolina a biofuels leader, educational offerings and institutions will need to be integrated and connected to the workplace -- whether in the field, forest, laboratory, greenhouse, manufacturing arena, distribution infrastructure, or retail space. The Biofuels Center has some initial goals about how it can be a resource to the state in education for the biofuels sector. They are: - To help catalyze education and training for the biofuels sector. - To interest young students in biofuels-related science and research - To support biofuels-related science, research and development - To help create a well-trained workforce - To educate the public about the strategic, economic and environmental need for biofuels as a replacement to imported petroleum.

The NC Biofuels website was created to provide North Carolinians with straightforward, useful and factual information about biofuels in this state.  Biofuels are renewable fuels such as ethanol, biodiesel, biogasoline, biojetfuel and other liquid fuels made from renewable resources such as energy grasses, woody biomass and waste products that often otherwise would end up in landfills. The Biofuels Center of North Carolina created NC Biofuels and maintains it as part of North Carolina's state policy mandate to help create and sustain a local, statewide biofuels industry sector.

So, if a biofuel is made or distributed in North Carolina, we want you to know about what it is, how to use it and where to get it. Our goal is also to inform North Carolinians about ongoing developments in the science, technology and commercialization of biofuels. We support our State’s shift away from almost total dependence on imported fuel through the development and use of sustainable, user-friendly biofuels on a mass scale and we hope you will join us in this shift, too.

As North Carolina grows more and more biomass in the rural parts of the state and produces hundreds of millions of gallons of biofuels, this new industry sector will create thousands of jobs, help family farmers keep their land, reduce greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels, support the environment, and increase our strategic security by decreasing our dependence on foreign oil. And for North Carolina motorists, every time you fill up, you’ll be putting dollars back into the local economy. This website can help North Carolinians find and use locally produced biofuels only if the information contained is up-to-date or useful.   Please contact us with suggestions or improvements.  To do so, click HERE:
