AE Biofuels, Inc. (AE Biofuels) has signed a strategic agreement with Pearson Fuels to supply cellulosic ethanol to its renewable fuels filling stations across California. As per the agreement, AE Biofuels supplies cellulosic ethanol and other biofuels to Pearson Fuels for distribution through its renewable fuels filling stations. AE Biofuels and Pearson Fuels also uses available government programs to develop additional renewable fuels filling stations in California.

“Ethanol from non-food sources will expand rapidly as new mandates take effect in the next year. We are pleased to be working with Pearson Fuels to supply E85 stations throughout California with next generation, clean, renewable fuel,” said Eric McAfee, chairman and chief executive officer of AE Biofuels.

“AE Biofuels will bring advanced biofuels to both our existing stations and the many we have under development,” said Mike Lewis, owner and general manager of Pearson Fuels. “We have been saying for years that cellulosic ethanol will be the next big step for the biofuels industry, and this agreement will go a long way to make that goal a reality.”
