7 Hot Energy Crops for Advanced Biofuels: What’s Happening?

Miscanthus, sorghum, switchgrass, jatropha, camelina, carinata, and arundo. Who’s doing what to bring these crops to scale — and who are the potential big winners? Hot molecules, big markets, proven technologies, ready finance, supportive policy. Sometimes they feel  miles away, sometimes right at hand. But none of them mean anything without sustainable, affordable, reliable, available […]
