As President Barack Obama prepares to deliver his annual State of the Union Address, leaders of some of the top biofuels companies in the country are offering their thoughts on the state of America's biofuels industry in a special episode of the Advanced Biofuels Association's Better Fuels Moment online video series.

The episode features Joel Velasco, senior vice president of Amyris; Jack Huttner, executive vice president, commercial and public affairs of Gevo; and Michael McAdams, president of the Advanced Biofuels Association, ABFA.
