Quotes

"Our initial plans for scale up were in hindsight terribly complicated, which turned outout to be unnecessary," says Coleman. "Perhaps we are bad at realising how simple things can be."

These strategies are not sustainable… The United State desperately needs a liquid fuel replacement for oil in the near future but producing ethanol or biodiesel from plant biomass is going down the wrong road, because you use more energy to produce these fuels than you get out from the combustion of these products… The government spends more than $3 billion a year to subsidize ethanol production when it does not provide a net energy balance or gain, is not a renewable energy source or an economical fuel. Further, its production and use contribute to air water and soil pollution and global warming…Ethanol production in the United States does not benefit the nation's energy security, its agriculture, economy or the environment. Ethanol production requires large fossil energy input, and therefore, it is contributing to oil and natural gas imports and U S deficits” [5]."
