Default How To Save The Biodiesel Industry



"BURLINGAME, Calif.--Can the biodiesel industry be saved? It's remotely possible--but not unless the government steps in to jump-start the besieged market.

Biodiesel, a low-carbon fuel usually made with soy, palm or canola oil, first grabbed the spotlight a few years ago. That was when Congress started promoting the green fuel as a replacement for traditional diesel. Private-equity firms started pumping hundreds of millions of dollars into companies like Seattle's Imperium Renewables and Green Earth Fuels, of Houston, hoping to get in on the ground floor of a nascent market.

I just keep hoping that the next time he says he'll leave, he will... How many times is this now 30? Didnt he say he would honor the vote 5 years ago? Worse than a bad rash...

If you only knew one-tenth about biofuel that you think you do, you might be able to have a real live opinion on it.

My own Parent Company is poised to become The Leader in the synthetic biofuels industry, primarily with Military and Jet Fuel contracts. This is merely one (but the most prominent) of 16 recycling/reuse projects (that I'm not at liberty to discuss) started by either my Company or its Parent, just this year.

What has Boing (sic) done to "Green Up" the World lately?

Googling your own Company's Press-releases to find out doesn't count - if you don't know about it without having to frantically dig-around on the 'Net, apparently you're not "In the Loop".

I keep waiting to fly on a 787 but there seem to be never-ending cupholder issues which keep it on the ground.

Can someone explain how biodiesel is "low-carbon"?

It's still made of hydrocarbons, right?
