Throughout the month of October, U.S. manufacturing plants in the biofuels industry opened their doors to students, teachers, local business leaders, elected officials, and media to show what careers in advanced manufacturing look like. From chemical engineers to scientists, project managers to operators: each plant offers a wide variety of highly-skilled, good-paying careers for workers in their community and was eager to show off. These jobs cannot be outsourced, and they represent the entire value chain of biofuel production—from collection of biomass to production of enzymes to fermentation of fuel to distribution. More than 200 biorefining plants across the U.S. currently support 850,000 jobs and $184 billion in economic impact as the move toward clean energy marches on.

Various biofuels plants across the U.S. and Canada held different activities to celebrate National Manufacturing Day, for example:

  • Siouxland Ethanol hosted welding students from Northeast Community College in South Sioux City, IA
  • Novozymes in Salem, VA, led a business overview with the Roanoke Times newspaper
  • Novozymes in Milwaukee, WI, hosted a tour for students from Carmen Schools of Science and Technology High School
