Florida give the green light to a cellulosic biofuel plant

Florida has given the green light to a cellulosic biofuels plant, according to ecogeek. Range fuels are the lucky chaps who’ve Well sort of. Its based on old fashioned idea of cutting down trees, chipping them and heating them up to give off gasses that can then be further processed. It is is at least honestly energy intensive. But it has the advantage that you can always plant more trees/coppice more trees. But you have to ensure that the soil the trees grows in does not become depleted over time. As you know I’m quite a fan of trees as a possible source of biofuels, with the usual caveats about sustainability, monocultures and so on…
