Future of Agriculture 010: Cellulosic Biofuels (Part 2) with Michael McAdams, President of the Advanced Biofuels Association

Michael McAdams knows cellulosic biofuels. He knows the issues, the history, the players, and the future. He is passionate, well-researched, and you can hear it in his voice that he truly cares about this topic. 

If you listened to episode 009 you heard the basics of cellulosic biofuels. In this episode we learn about the governmental and private industry sides of the equation. What does it take to get cellulosic ethanols up and running? What is meant by a drop-in biofuel and why is that exciting? 

Mike even describes some exciting work being done to turn algae into biofuels with 20x the per acre efficiency of corn. There are so many interesting aspects of this topic, we could make this a 10 part series! But sorry, we’re only doing three. 

Visit the Advanced Biofuels Association website to learn more about their work.
