FL Farm-to-Fuel Program & Biodiesel and FL School Bus Fleets

February 2, 2006

Florida Farm-to-Fuel Program

Florida’s Farm to Fuel Program is a recent initiative enacted by Commissioner Charles H. Bronson. Incentives for fuel and non-food crop production in Florida are on the rise. In part, the intention of promoting fuel and non-food crop production is to create mutual benefits for farmers and fuel and other industries, governments, etc.; and to seek alternative, diversified, and sustainable means of meeting our state and national fuel needs. In order to enhance a measure of sustainability for long-term viability of crop and soil productivity, certain quality standards or regulations need to be implemented in coordination with said incentives. 

Below are links for the following:

· Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Farm to Fuel Program and related grant program; 
· Website links for the U.S. Dept. of Energy Biomass Program, Biofuels Program, and Biomass Publications; 
· Recent News Coverage on the FL Farm-to-Fuel Program; 
· Information on the National Campaign For Sustainable Agriculture – Farm-Based Renewable Energy Meeting / Discussion; 
· A Message from the European Biodiesel Board regarding EU sustainability measures, related links and reports.

Message from the European Biodiesel Board:

  “The EU currently uses two main tools for supporting the growing of raw materials for non-food and energy production. One is the set – aside scheme that you mention and the other one is the energy crop scheme that applies only to area non set-aside. Both regimes are submitted to very strict environmental compliance schemes under the so called cross-compliance of the CAP.”
