Greener, better biofuels

When it comes to technology and science, many of us are like diners in a gourmet restaurant. We enjoy what’s on our plates but are nearly clueless about the cooking the chefs do in the kitchen. One of the essential ingredients for technology is oil – and it is running out. We need to find substitutes. Otherwise the dishes on the technology menu are going to cost more and be far fewer than we need. At Clemson the search for oil substitutes is, well, energetic.
