Kentucky lawyer Sanders says keep your eye on Joule Biotechnologies for generation of biofuel that is good for America and the environment.

Keep your eyes on Joule Biotechnologies, Inc.  This biotech company is based upon Helioculture™ technology—a revolutionary process that harnesses sunlight to directly convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into SolarFuel™ liquid energy.

The Cambridge, Massachusetts-based company hopes to make up to 20,000 gallons per acre of fuel a year by late 2011 or early 2012 at prices competitive with $50 per barrel oil. It concentrates sunlight in a solar converter, directing it and carbon dioxide to engineered micro organisms to make fuel similar to ethanol.

Because the microorganisms absorb CO2, the main greenhouse gas, to make ethanol, the fuel may eventually play a role in efforts to reduce this contaminants level in the atmosphere.  If so, the company should be able to generate carbon credits from making the bio-fuel.  All of which would help reduce global warming and should help keep the cost of producing the fuel competitive with oil

According to the company, this eco-friendly, direct-to-fuel conversion requires no agricultural land or fresh water, and leverages a highly scalable system capable of producing more than 20,000 gallons of renewable ethanol or hydrocarbons per acre annually.  —far eclipsing productivity levels of current alternatives while rivaling the costs of fossil fuels.

Such technological solutions to bio-fuels, global warming, and bio-engineering is just what America needs in this century.  Let’s cheer their efforts and praise their successes to do good and do well in America!
