“Biofuels Digest,” Florida’s premier biofuel online newsletter

Biofuels Digest is perhaps the greatest testament to the power of biofuels to change the world. While they still occupy only a small amount of the energy source makeup in America, they have inspired Floridian Jim Lane to create a daily digest newsletter which has over 75,000 readers and an Asian branch. Even more impressive, it’s become an authority in the industry, with rankings like “The 30 Most Transformative Technologies) and the “50 Hottest Companies in Bioenergy” attracting major attention.BD is in the process of coming up with a new ranking, the “Top 100 People in Bioenergy,” as decided by reader votes. The ballots are open to registered subscribers for the next week, after which the Digest‘s editorial board will contribute their own votes to the ballot.Another interesting feature is the ongoing article “The Biorefinery Project of the Future.” The 4th of 10 parts was published on September 27, 2010, a hypothetical project that outlines the direction a future bioenergy project could take.In addition to news and rankings, the site provides upcoming event information, job listings, profiles of innovative companies like POET and Solazyme, and stock market info on key biofuels companies. You can subscribe to the daily digest newsletter by entering your e-mail at the bottom of any post. Also, check out the BD‘s sister publications, Geothermal Digest, Biomass Digest, Biotech Digest, and the new Sustainable City. While the project is making headlines and establishing itself as a major source of information, it remains a labor of love. If Lane and his team can reach enough people, the future of biofuels looks bright indeed.
