If they are working biofuels over that much I have to wonder what the overalll EROEI is?
So, so lets assume they do have a bio product that packs more grunt then hydrocarbons. Do an energy comparison in production. How much energy is used to produce 1 gallon of gas put into my car versus what is produced to make 1 gallon of his gas.
Dont forget his gas, as I have said before, is aat least partially relying on the products of my gas.
At some point, it may become energy positive. The question is whether or not even a small increase in efficiency is worth the effort.
I personally believe that any such baby steps are worth it... every inch of progress we make toward a better renewable energy source is worth every penny spent getting there.
