Algae Biofuels not Offered a Level Playing Field says Mary Rosenthal

” The federal tax policy actually discourages the production of low-carbon, renewable algae-based fuels, including drop-in gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel, as well as ethanol, by failing to provide them the same incentives accorded to other advanced biofuel feedstocks. This lack of parity, where some feedstocks are favored and others like algae go unrecognized, acts […]
