The White House is form­ing a work­ing group to speed devel­op­ment of bio­fu­els and make ethanol more wide­ly avail­able at fuel sta­tions. The group will work with bio­fu­el pro­duc­ers to phase out fos­sil fuel use at their plants and use bio­fu­els instead, which could accel­er­ate bio­fu­el fund­ing. The group will encour­age a new gen­er­a­tion of bio­fu­els made from bio­mass and oth­er non-corn feed­stocks.
