‘Biofuels … will increasingly play a larger role in our economy’

We appreciated the interest shown by U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown and his office at Wednesday’s “algae farm” open house near Wooster. As part of the program, Ann Longsworth Orr, northwest Ohio regional representative for Sen. Brown, read a letter of support from him. Here are two excerpts:

“By reusing carbon dioxide to produce algae for use as a biofuel, this partnership between the Department of Energy, Ohio State University/OARDC in Wooster, GZA GeoEnvironmental, Cedar Lane Farms, OpenAlgae, and the state of Ohio is another example of the sort of innovative, cutting-edge efforts we must undertake to address our nation’s pressing energy challenges. Funded by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, this project is the latest example of people working together to tackle the pressing problems facing our nation. […]

“Our nation has a long history of supporting and helping emerging industries as they work to make today’s dreams tomorrow’s reality. Biofuels—and biobased products and processes—will increasingly play a larger role in our economy.”
