The new new thing


by Shikha Dalmia


“Every year, there is a new green technology that triggers eager predictions that the days of gasoline-powered engines are numbered. Last year, it was lithium-ion batteries. The year before that, it was hydrogen fuel cells. This year’s buzz generator — a new biofuel developed by a small Illinois company called Coskata — holds genuine promise to become a cleaner and cheaper alternative to gasoline. But the fuel’s efforts to achieve commercial viability will be hurt, not helped, if its well connected investors succeed in convincing the federal government to mandate a distribution infrastructure for it.” (03/24/08)
