[GreenYes] Re: Compost-to-Switchgrass-to-Fuel?

I think that's the point of using biosolids as the soil-enhancing agent..the
project was overseen by a member of the National Academy of Science's
committee on soil science from the University of Washington..among the
findings: lower cost of production, and biosolids-amended soils had higher
yields than unamended soils.achieved goal of creating recycling loop of

I would hope that the biofuels industry would pay more attention to what the
soil scientists are reporting -- that biofuels change the carbon that should
be recycled back to the land and instead put it into fuel tanks.

At one of the conferences on biofuels that I attended, several soil
scientists gave presentations on how the carbon level in soils is declining
and that biofuels could make this situation much worse.
