The Law of Biorefineries and Advanced Biofuels

Stoel Rivers Publishes Legal Guide for Advanced Biofuels Industry

Stoel Rives, a U.S. business law firm, is pleased to announce the publication of a new advanced biofuels legal guide. The Law of Biorefineries and Advanced Biofuels is part of a series published by Stoel Rives that provides entrepreneurs, investors, lenders and developers with an overview of the key legal issues encountered in a typical renewable energy project. The Law of Biorefineries and Advanced Biofuels covers issues such as early stage financing, business models, intellectual property, regulatory and permitting requirements, real property procedures, contracts and incentives.

“We are in the midst of the rapid commercialization of advanced biofuel and biochemical products,” said attorney Graham Noyes, co-editor. “Recent state and federal policies have accelerated the growth of the U.S. advanced biofuel marketplace, and the industry’s economics are increasingly attractive. As lawyers and supporters of the biofuel industry since its inception, we wanted to provide those in the industry with our insights into the legal landscape of this unique and dynamic energy source.”

The new guide can be downloaded for free at www.stoel.com/lawofseries, along with The Law of Algae, The Law of Wind (available in Chinese and English), Lex Helius: The Law of Solar Energy (also available in Chinese), The Law of Marine and Hydrokinetic Energy, Lava Law: The Law of Geothermal Energy, The Law of Outdoor Products and The Law of Wine (in CA, ID, OR and WA).
