About the Biofuels Center - Funding

Funding

The Center is permanently funded by the North Carolina General Assembly to implement North Carolina's Strategic Plan over time and to help make the state more energy independent.  In 2007, the General Assembly created the Biofuels Center to implement the plan so that the state's farmers, biofuels manufacturers, biofuels workers, and consumers will benefit from this new multimillion dollar home-grown industry.  To do so, the Center was funded with a $5 million initial appropriation from the 2007 General Assembly.
