Gas PumpIn an update to this Chad’s News article, the researchers at LS9 have made some significant advances with their genetically-engineered bacteria that create gasoline, especially in terms of what can be used as raw materials. From the article: “The company is not interested in using corn as feedstock … instead, different types of agricultural waste will be used according to whatever makes sense for the local climate and economy: wheat straw in California, for example, or woodchips in the South.”

    Raven Biofuels International: RVBF.OB. They claim to have the ability to make cellulosic ethanol from non food sources for $0.60 a gallon. I hope its real.
    I do not currently own RVBF and this is not a buy or sell recommendation on this stock, merely a real world application of what Chad has commented on.

    This is fantastic. For all those years when we couldn’t pursue alternative fuels because gasoline was so cheap. Now they’re viable, and we’ve got companies coming out of the woodwork.
