Job Type


BioUrja Advisors, LLC is the shared services company within BioUrja Group, LLC (“BioUrja” or the “Company”). Established in 2006, BioUrja was initially founded to supply physical bioethanol to the U.S. refining industry. Since then, BioUrja has continued its focus on clean and reliable energy, and it is one of the pillars of our culture. BioUrja has since evolved into a conglomerate of companies focused on physical and financial trading of commodities involving ethanol (fuel, industrial and beverage), refined petroleum products, NGLs, power, agriculture, steel and specialty alloys, and midstream logistics as well as the operation of an ethanol plant that produces ¼ of the U.S.’s beverage alcohol. We count every major refining company as our customer, as well as most of the largest international trading houses and wholesalers. With multibillion dollars in revenue, we are a significant market player in many of the industries in which we participate. Our foundation is exceptional service and reliability in delivering physical commodities anywhere on the globe.
