Farmers & aviation biofuels!

Farmers fueling flights – aviation biofuels.

Its exciting future for agriculture and the potential farmers have, to produce aviation biofuels. Richard Branson’s Virgin Australia have announced a consortium with Renewable Oil Corporation (ROC), Dynamotive Energy Systems Corporation (DYMTF) and Future Farm Industries Co-operative Research Centre (FFI CRC) to develop sustainable aviation biofuels with benefits. Benefits from these types of projects will flow to the Australian farming community and the environment.

    Have been following Dynamotive for almost a decade, invested in them. Saw the potential, when Richard Branson an G.E. jumped on board I became quite excited! I have worked in the Pulp and Paper industry for the last 21 years. I knew there was great potential in bio-fuel sectors for a carbon neutral fuel for the future. It is soooooo cool that Richard is such a forward thinker!!!! I was in Isla Mujeres in Feb. 2012 and just missed him. Soooo dissapointed, If he wants to spend a weekend at my lakeside retreat in Maine he’s most welcome. The State of Maine is positioned for these technologies more than most realize!
