The Bioenergy Program for Advanced Biofuels provides payments to producers to support and expand production of advanced biofuels refined from sources other than corn kernel starch. The Program supports and helps to ensure the expanding production of advanced biofuels by providing payments to eligible advanced biofuel producers. Advanced biofuels are produced from renewable biomass crops such as cellulose, sugar and starch (other than ethanol derived from corn kernel starch), hemicelluloses, lignin, waste materials, biogas, butanol, diesel-equivalent fuel, sugarcane, and nonfood crops such as poplar trees or switchgrass.
