Our History

The Advanced Fuels Center was established in September of 2006 under the name of Bio-Energy Innovation and Testing Center.  It started as a small operation meant to test and certify petroleum and bio-based fuels as well as foster growth in the bio-energy business sector.  Since then, the Center has undergone several name changes as well as shifted its focus from biodiesel to bio-based fuel additives and materials.  The Center still tests and certifies fuels through our ASTM Bio-Diesel Certification Lab and does engine emissions testing, but it also focuses heavily on the development of bio-based products grown at home in the state of Montana.
