Global Leaders in Advanced Biofuels Industry Urge Congressional Leaders to Extend Critical Tax Provisions

WASHINGTON, Feb. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Leaders of America's rapidly emerging advanced biofuels industry urged congressional leaders today to extend two tax provisions that are critical to the commercialization of new biofuel production technologies.

In a letter addressed to the Chairs and Ranking Members of the House Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committees, more than 30 advanced biofuel company CEOs pressed for a five year extension of the Cellulosic Biofuels Producer Tax Credit (PTC) and the Accelerated Depreciation Allowance for Cellulosic Biofuel Plant Property.

It will be much more difficult for our companies to develop projects in the United States if current depreciation allowances expire and taxes on our industry increase in 2013."

The Advanced Ethanol Council (AEC), the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), and the Advanced Biofuels Association (ABFA) echoed the statements made in the letter.

"If the United States expects to lead the global effort to develop innovative alternatives to increasingly expensive petroleum-derived fuels, it cannot afford to allow the very policies that support emerging advanced biofuel industries to expire," said AEC Executive Director Brooke Coleman. "Extending these cost-effective tax provisions for a sensible length of time will level-set the marketplace relative to government support for fossil fuels and accelerate the commercial production of advanced biofuels from a wide variety of biomass and waste resources."
