Check out new small-scale biofuels exploration group!

After a discussion with a farmer here in Michigan, who is interested in incorporating biofuel production into his rotating crop enterprise, I went ahead and set up http://socialsynergyweb.org/oardc/permaculture-based-and-small-farm-prod... as a group here to explore this ide.

The fact is thatin the US, we have a huge fleet of transport, construction, and farming machines that could fairly easily be retro-fitted to run on biofuels. This possibly opens up a new opportunity for food producers to leverage plant waste material, or even to dedicate part of their agricultural production towards an emerging way to generate income, and meet existing demand for a portable combustion engine fuel source.

Please join us at http://socialsynergyweb.org/oardc/permaculture-based-and-small-farm-prod... if you are interested in any aspect of this.
