John Holladay Quoted about Biofuels

(April 2014)

John Holladay of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory was quoted in Greenwire on Algenol's goals to produce algae-based ethanol fuel that costs $1.27/gallon to manufacture, allowing the fuel to compete in a marketplace currently focused on petroleum. Holladay helped develop a related catalytic technology that Algenol uses to produce gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel from their spent algae, He was quoted as saying, "They've had a long, long road of developing the science that was required to make this work. Sometimes people don't understand the road and how much was done to get to the point where they are today." The article is titled "Biofuels: Enthusiastic entrepreneur places big bet on algae."
