  • Biodiesel leader: Arizona positioned to lead in producing algae for fuel, 8 February 2011 by The Sierra Vista Herald: "Arizona’s sunny, dry weather makes it the perfect location for farming algae to produce renewable fuels, an executive of a national biofuels group said Monday."
    • "In addition, the state’s coal-fired power plants produce quantities of carbon dioxide that would allow for more efficient production of algae."
    • "However, technology that would allow for mass-production of algae is probably a decade away."
    • "Bruce Rittman, director of the Center for Environmental Biotechnology at the Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute, said in a telephone interview that he thinks the technology needed to mass-produce algae probably is more like five years way. But the infrastructure required probably means the U.S. is 15-20 years away from algae being a major fuel source."[1]
  • Land of Milk and Biofuel. 28 December 2007 A Phoenix based company is planning a biorefinery using dairy products to produce 100 million gallons of ethanol, 25 million to 30 million gallons of biodiesel fuel and 21 million gallons of milk a year.
