The Future of Biofuels

What's in store for biofuels? It's had fits and starts (corn-based in the U.S. gobbles up farmland for food... increasing prices) and sugar-based in Brazil leads to deforestation. Policy tries to "pick winners" - with severe unintended consequences. So, what's a person to do?

This article discusses the basic technology (in layman's terms), companies making significant progress in "drop-in" fuels, the state of technology commercialization and yes, the general bio-fuels market.

Worth reading.
