Algae Industry Magazine has posted a video of U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack discussing next generation biofuels.
Vilsack explains some of the reasons behind the agreement between the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Department of Energy and the Navy. The agreement will increase mutual support in developing next generation biofuels.
The Secretary discusses the 1 million jobs which will be created as a result of the “$100 billion of investments in capital, in new facilities, new bio-refineries”.
He continues that “we’ve got to figure out alternative and different ways to be able to produce bio fuels. We need to use algae.”
