The Queensland Government’s Biofutures Acceleration Program aims to attract and support development of new commercial-scale biorefinery projects in Queensland. The State’s foundations of a highly skilled workforce, abundant raw materials, integrated transport systems and proximity to the growing Asian markets makes it an ideal location to develop a biorefinery.

Biofutures Acceleration Program Expression of Interest
The Biofutures Acceleration Program Expression of Interest recently attracted 26 proposals from companies interested in building commercial-scale biorefineries in Queensland. Proposals were received from established companies based in the USA, Asia and Europe as well as Australia, with many potential proponents identifying specific biorefinery development locations and projected job and investment opportunities.
The Queensland Government is now assessing each proposal, with shortlisted successful proponents to be announced by mid-2017.
