Biofuel News Roundup

I am a big fan of bio-fuels for a number of reasons. It allows new and smaller players to enter the energy industry saturated by Big Oil and government-owned corporations. Bio-fuels can be manufactured by simple technologies by almost anyone. It even allows one to live off the grid. If bio-fuels become commercially viable, petroleum based fuels will have face healthy competition and consumers will have more choice. And so on. Here is a round up of recent news relating to bio-fuels.
