WTH do you have to to tie my water usage to my freaking garbage bill ?? When I water my grass or garden, how much solid waste does that produce ? NONE. Have a pay-per-throw program and make those who who generate the most trash pay for it. Is that too simple for everyone ?

Hopefully there will never be enough of you people that would just throw everything in a landfill and keep on consuming, to have your way. Responsible citizens recycle on their own and would even pay to do it. The rest of you need a little coaching, prodding, and even public criticism, when you fail to see the value and social responsibility of recycling.

--------------

Cellulosic and advanced biofuels producers are very concerned that the EPA proposal to lower 2014 Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) targets will have a chilling effect on investment in the next generation of renewable fuels.

 

The uncertainty created by the proposal has already caused Abengoa Bioenergy to wait and see what happens before they commit to any further investment, according to Executive Vice President, Institutional Affairs Chris Standlee

Standlee :35

 

Iogen Corporation president and CEO Brian Foody says they would like to expand technology for cellulosic ethanol using sugarcane bagasse in Brazil to the United States as long as the RFS provides the incentive for investment.

Foody :51

 

Delayne Johnson, General Manager of the farmer-owned Quad County Corn Processors ethanol plant which broke ground in July on a bolt-on cellulosic ethanol technology, said that changing the RFS at this point is "going to create uncertainty" for other plants looking at adopting that technology.

Johnson :28

 

Advanced Ethanol Council Executive Director Brooke Coleman says lowering the volume requirements under the RFS creates a shrinking market for biofuels.

Coleman :33

 

The comment period on the EPA proposal for 2014 volume obligations ends January 28, but Renewable Fuels Association president and CEO Bob Dinneen expects it will be some time before a final decision is made and he believes it will be changed to avoid any legal challenge from the industry.
