Queensland's biofuels industry could be supported by the US navy's growing appetite for renewable energy, the premier says.

Annastacia Palaszczuk, who is on her first trade mission as premier to the United States, met with senior navy officials at the Pentagon to discuss potential biofuel opportunities for Queensland.

"If we can lock down this partnership, we can unlock the opportunities to Queensland this will bring," Ms Palaszczuk said.
