Local Bio Fuel Studies

This appeared in the local news paper this morning which will interest you all.
www.floridatoday.com (click on "going green")
I would love to get cranked up on the algae production. I will make the effort to visit these places.

Great article Tom, thanks for posting it!

It reaffirms my commitment to continue my bio work.

Tom,
I'm always interested in info/studies on the future of alternate fuels. Seeing that the link would bring me to Florida Today, I decided not to click on the link. I refuse to read anything in that fish wrapper.

I did see an blurb on Fox news this morning about making fuel from coffee beans. Now that would be some sweet smelling exhaust

I hope my wife never gets behind a vehicle burning that - it would just feed her Starbucks addiction!

One of my suppliers is a bakery ( and yes the bio smells like donuts!) If I added the coffee based bio I'd have every cop in town following me around!

Now that's a funny one. I could just see them sucking on your tailpipe.

Interesting. I had read somewhere that bakeries never changed their oil because the donuts absorb so much of it and they just keep adding new to the fryer; therefore, I never asked any of the bakeries for their oil.

I don't think Florida Today cares whether you read their paper or not. That's up to you. But if someone directs me to an interesting and educational article that concerns something that I am very interested in, than I don't care WHO publishes it. YOU are the one who is losing out. Tom
