US Senate passes Farm Bill with more than $800M in mandatory funding for bioenergy programs

US Senate passes Farm Bill with more than $800M in mandatory funding for bioenergy programs

The Congressional Budget Office CBO estimates that direct spending stemming from the program authorization under the 12 titles in S. 954 would total $955 billion over the 2014-2023 period. That 10-year total reflects the bill’s authorization of expiring programs through 2018 and an extension of those authorizations through 2023. The energy title (Title IX) of the bill contains:

New Alga Discovered In Colorado Will Possibly Extend Biodiesel Production Northwards

New Alga Discovered In Colorado Will Possibly Extend Biodiesel Production Northwards

Researchers have discovered a new type of yellow-green algae — heterococcus sp. DN1 — that could potentially be a good source for biodiesel production and allow biodiesels to be produced much further north than they are now. The new strain was discovered living in the snow fields of the Rocky Mountains. H. sp. DN1 is apparently able to grow at very-low temperatures — near freezing — all the while accumulating large stores of lipids. It actually produces lipids at its highest rate when grown undisturbed in low temperatures and bright light — much like the conditions present in a snow field during the summer
