Growing A Bioeconomy -- Flanders To Produce Fossil-Free Fuels, Chemicals, And Products 9.11.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
"By 2050, around 50 percent of all chemicals produced will be biobased." --Dr. Wim Soetaert Biodegradable biobased products made without fossil-fuel feedstocks are showcased at the Biobased Europe Pilot Plant in Ghent, Belgium. The products include a laundry liquid and a hand soap made by Ecover, shower gels by Nivea and Sanex, a skin oil by Kneipp, and a window de-icer by Forever, as well as samples of the plant's biodiesel and bioethanol. Ghent, Belgium--A nonprofit public-private partnership called Flanders Biobased Valley (FBBV) and several key allies hope to transform the Flanders region of Belgium into the hub of a new European center of biobased economic activity. More than €500 million has already been invested in the region's bioeconomy. In a biobased economy, fuels and chemicals are produced from plant-derived materials rather than petroleum or other fossil fuels. The term "bioeconomy" encompasses agriculture and forestry-based processors and their products, such as food and paper, as well as ...

Foreign suppli...

Why we still need alternative fuels when gas is cheap 11.2.2015 MinnPost
Retail gasoline prices in Minnesota are at their lowest in five years, and for the vast majority of Minnesota motorists, that’s very good news. Now that we are paying less at pump, some are beginning to suggest that we no longer need cleaner alternatives to petroleum, or that Americans will soon return to driving more and purchasing big, inefficient vehicles. But there is still a strong case for using alternative fuels, even as gasoline prices drop.  Here are five reasons Minnesota should stick to alternatives to petroleum: Robert Moffitt 1. The cost of alternative fuels have dropped, too. The price of all fuels varies widely by location and retailer, but generally speaking biofuels such as E85 and E30 have been priced less than regular unleaded in Minnesota. The owners of flex fuel vehicles have responded to these lower prices, keeping sales strong throughout 2014. In November 2014, more than 1.3 million gallons of cleaner-burning E85 were sold in the state, an increase over the same period in 2013. As ...
