coondoggie writes “This one sounds a bit like really wishful thinking. The US Department of Energy today announced $30 million for research projects that would develop advanced biofuels that could replace gasoline or diesel without requiring special upgrades or changes to the vehicle or fueling infrastructure. The $30 million would be spent over the next four years to support as many as five ‘traditionally high-risk biofuels projects,’ such as converting biomass into biofuels and bioproducts to be eventually used for hydrocarbon fuels and chemicals.”
