This guest post from Paul Taylor covers a topic about which many of us are interested, the generation of energy from sustainable sources. The tool Mr. Taylor introduces is called the Vegawatt, designed for restaurant use. Read on! – GRM As I constantly browse the Internet looking for new and innovative ways people have been […]

“Our new process could help end our dependence on fossil fuels,” said Y.H. Percival Zhang, an associate professor of biological systems engineering in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College of Engineering “Hydrogen is one of the most important biofuels of the future.”
Practically every year there is a new product or solution on the market that helps consumers trim their energy bills, and many of them are affordable. Green technologies will continue to be developed, and at a greater speed because of how necessary it really is to both consumers and the planet. Taking full advantage of them will make your own environment healthier, in addition to the other benefits. Therefore, it is good to get informed on the different products and learn how to apply them to your home. Even if they are baby steps, if everyone does their part, we can make a difference.
A byproduct of biofuel manufacture can power microbial fuel cells to generate electricity cheaply and efficiently, according to scientists presenting their work at the Society for General Microbiology’s Autumn Conference. The work could help develop self-powered devices that would depollute waste water and be used to survey weather in extreme environments.
Terminal located near major diesel terminals; offers fast, convenient splash blending Petroleum marketers now have access to high quality, large volume quantities of biodiesel from a new terminal in southwest Ohio. The nation’s leading biodiesel producer and marketer, Renewable Energy Group (REG), today announced a new terminal agreement for B100/B99 splash blending near Lebanon, Ohio. And […]

Gevo, Inc., a renewable chemicals and biofuels company, announced today it has begun startup of the world’s first commercial bio-based isobutanol production plant located in Luverne, Minn.
An article in F1000 Biology Reports published today argues that recent advances in knowledge mean that plant-derived biofuels could meet about 30 percent of the global demand for liquid transportation fuels, drastically reducing the amounts of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels, without having an impact on food production.
Solazyme, Inc., a renewable oil and bioproducts company, and Bunge Global Innovation LLC, a global agribusiness and food company, announced today that they have formed a joint venture to build, own and operate a commercial-scale renewable tailored oils production facility adjacent to Bunge’s Moema sugarcane mill in Brazil.
According to BIO, the Renewable Fuel Standard is the bedrock policy to encourage continued investment in production of biofuels. The organization contends the production of biofuels has helped to check fuel prices at the pump.

We need alternatives to the fuel we consume so rapidly. We have alternatives to both gasoline and petroleum diesel in the forms of ethanol and biodiesel. We have the technology to make these products and we can gain the education needed to encourage the use of these products in a very short time so that everyone knows the benefits and is willing to make the change. Biodiesel can be derived from new or used ingredients. It is vegetable oil not alcohol.
