My interview with Jesse Jenkins on the Energy Collective podcast
Vinnie and Anna discuss being preppy in the 80s, biofuels, the “Refresher,” and the importance and how-tos of stretching. NYT article on stretching studies here: Reasons Not To Stretch.
Transforming waste plant material into a sustainable, low-emission fuel for the world’s cars, trucks and planes is the aim of a new research collaboration between CSIRO and leading Australian and UK universities.
Algae is one of several potential fuel sources being looked at to help solve the global energy crisis. It is attractive on several fronts: It’s easy to produce, it can be grown in regions that aren’t used for food, and it doesn’t need to compete with the same water used in crop irrigation. Most important, algae is rich in oils that can be used in biodiesel production. An internally-funded project at Sandia, described here by molecular biologist Todd Lane, is addressing some of the technical challenges that researchers face in the effort to make algae a viable biofuel.
