What if there was a way to use energy-rich organic molecules to fuel our cars, planes and ships? Using last years crop for this year’s fuel still produces emissions, but because these molecules we’re recently sequestered, they are not adding to the atmospheric balance in the same way fossil fuels do.

In 2010, the US consumed 13.2 billion gallons of ethanol (derived from corn), most of which was blended in with gasoline. Other potential feedstocks include algae, cellulosic or wood-based ethanol, and organic oil created from a variety of different plants and organisms.
