This committee identifies trends and addresses issues in the biofuels industry significant to NGFA-member companies, including those related to the production and use of biofuel co-products used as feed ingredients. It also keeps abreast of the needs of NGFA-member companies involved in biofuels production as they relate to the grain, feed and grain processing industry. The committee refers issues and recommendations important to the biofuels sector concerning such matters as grain availability, co-product utilization, transportation/logistics, and safety, health and environmental compliance to the appropriate NGFA committees for review and action. And it develops plans for attracting additional biofuels companies into the NGFA membership.
