Joanne Ivancic, Advanced Biofuels USA’s executive director, discusses alternative energy with U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, R-6th, at a recent Go Green energy conference at the Frederick fairgrounds.

Advanced Biofuels USA received notice recently that it has become a tax-exempt nonprofit organization.

The organization's main educational tool is its website, , the only site in the world dedicated to expanding knowledge about advanced biofuels, said Joanne Ivancic, the organization's executive director.

"Our focus is on education of the general public, government leaders and decision-makers, as well as the media and the agriculture, fuels and investment communities," Ivancic said. "I'm thrilled that we have received this (tax-exempt) recognition, which enables supporters to deduct from their taxes donations they make to Advanced Biofuels USA."
