Soyatech Announces New Biofuels Index (3.16.2007)

BAR HARBOR, ME – Soyatech, LLC announces the availability of its Biofuels Index, a quarterly index report that provides subscribers with an objective tool to asses the unfolding investment boom and capacity build-out in the biofuels industry. The index is designed to enable industry professionals and investors to assess current and projected biofuels capacity, feedstock demand by region, and other factors affecting the biofuels industry.

Each quarter, the Soyatech Biofuels Index includes:

  • Tracking of production capacity in three categories; current, under construction and planned, as well as comparison against previous estimates and projections
  • Analysis of financing sponsors for plants and projects: publicly-traded companies vs. private groups
  • Trend lines and geographic concentrations (capacities and feedstock consumption)

Future indices will also include information on relevant policy and political developments, biofuels capacities in major overseas markets, comparisons of feedstock commodity prices and energy-equivalent prices, and plant-level gross margin estimates.

"We are pleased to be able to offer this important source of information to the industry,” said Peter Golbitz, president and founder of Soyatech. “There is a great deal of excitement surrounding the biofuels industry, with new players entering in from both the production and investment sides. The Soyatech Biofuels Index will help new and existing industry professionals to monitor production, projected capacity and other factors affecting the biofuels industry.”
