Biographical/Historical:     The Farm to Fuel initiative was established in 2006 (Section 570.954, Florida Statute) to position Florida as a leader in the production of alternative energy through the use of crops and woody biomass from Florida farms. By utilizing these alternative forms of energy, the initiative aimed to reduce the state's dependency on foreign oil, open new markets for Florida growers and create jobs through the processing of agricultural products and byproducts. The ultimate goal of the initiative was for Florida's agricultural industry to meet 25% of the state's energy needs by the year 2025. To achieve its goals, the Farm to Fuel initiative provided matching grants for bioenergy projects, which supported research and development of feedstock for the production of biofuel, as well as, for the construction of biodiesel and ethanol plants.
