I stumbled on this new forum, am usually over in the NJ one, and funnily enough, I do some work in the field of biodiesel and other biofuels.

Biodiesel, Cellulosic Ethanol, Biobutanol and other Biofuels

No retail stuff that would affect consumers directly, but mostly moving biofuels from one place to another, as well as investing in production and other facilities.

By the sound of this article- I'd say Biodiesel will become a dinosaur soon. Rather than the other way around.

Yep it's a loseing proposition as is corn based ethonel. One of Minnesotas major producers of soy based bio-diesel halted production due to the high cost of feed stock....
