More High Tech Fuel Production
Read about it here. LS9, a company in Silicon Valley, calls itself the "Renewable Petrolium Company". What kind of people work at such a place? How about a synthetic biologist/evolutionary engineer; a fermentation scientist; a microbial physiologist? That's right, we're not drilling for oil here, we're fermenting it from agricultural waste products. LS9 plans on a demonstration-scale production facility by 2010 and a commercial-scale facility in 2011.
