Cold eye cast on once-hot biodiesel play

A year ago there was lots of positive promotional coverage of Bio Willie “farm fresh biodiesel” fuel. In the newest issue of Forbes Magazine (“Stardust: the troubled history behind the company that signed Willie Nelson“; January 8, 2007; page 42; byline Daniel Fisher), Earth Biofuels and the “colorful background” of one of the chief figures associated with that company undergo scrutiny. This author analyzes the financials and ventures some opinions about the future. Nothing is said about how any ordinances banning trans-fats used in restaurant and fast-food cooking might affect the raw materials of biofuels. Will our city council follow NYC’s lead? What will be the effect on the exhaust-pipe aroma of those vehicles using biofuels? Stay tuned.
