• Biodiesel Does Not Compete with Food

    Half of the biodiesel produced in the US is made from soybean oil. The other half is produced substantially from animal fats, used cooking oil, and other recycled or waste oils.

  • Nature's Bluprint for Renewable Energy

    We are making inroads to capture solar energy using photovoltaic, thermal, wind, wave, hydroelectric, and other methods. The challenge facing these forms of energy capture is how to store energy, particularly for mobile uses. As it turns out, nature has a solution to that, too. Nature has given us a blueprint for storing solar energy. That blueprint is best exemplified in a plant.
