WCTA Board Member John Gardner wrote a guest column in Xconomy entitled Don’t Discount Biofuels. John notes: “…the ability to create a liquid transportation fuel from biology in near real time isn’t as much of a leap as we might have believed. I credit much of this progress to the diverse and sophisticated community that has come together around biofuels for a specific purpose – aviation. They challenged those of us who have trolled in this space as supply-side and technology pushers. It’s been good news for biofuels, and my hope for that elusive bioeconomy as well.” John Gardner is the incoming Dean at the Bainbridge Graduate Institute and an adjunct professor at WSU.
