It's a company working to turn waste into renewable gasoline. Friday, it got a nod of approval from the Governor.

Rick Perry was in town to help dedicate Terrabon's new advanced biofuels research facility, Energy Independence 1.

The Bryan research facility will continue work already being done at Terrabon's pilot plant in College Station, which has been testing renewable gasoline for 3 years.

The ideas behind Terrabon were developed at Texas A&M. Governor Perry, also an Aggie, says he wants to see more entrepreneurs making their ideas a reality across the state.

"What I wanna do in the state is create this dynamic. I want to create an environment in the state of Texas where people who know that they can come and risk their capital. That they can have the opportunity to see a good return on that investment," said Perry.

The governor says he wants Texas to be the center of alternative fuel development for the world.
