To announce this Sweet Desert Biofuels are holding a conference in association with Desertbiofuels and Greenindependence. The conference will be held on May 22, 2009 at ASU’s SkySong Auditorium, which is located at 1475 N. Scottsdale, Scottsdale, AZ 85257 from 9:00 a.m. until noon. The title of the conference will be: A New Green Model for Agricultural Energy Production: CO2 Sequestration and Carbon Neutral Fuels with Algae.

The main problem with algae fuel has been its economic viability, Sweet Desert Biofuels has made a breakthrough toward the economic production of carbon neutral algae biofuels, (CNAB) that are produced in a process that creates substantial Carbon Dioxide sequestration.
Biofuels by definition are carbon neutral, but the process of producing these biofuels is carbon negative. When using these biofuels in cars, trains, planes and ships, -CO2 is removed from the atmosphere. The CNAB process is both economic and scalable in such a way as to reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil and to help control climate change. Furthermore, the consequences of the full development of this new model may lead to slowingor stopping the destruction of our rain forest and oceans.
On their website Sweet Desert Biofuels want to make it their goal to produce algae biodiesel at under $3.00 per gallon, compared to todays fuel prices which range from $2.20 – $2.50, that’s roughly a 20% increase. If this were the case;
WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO PAY MORE FOR YOUR FUEL KNOWING THAT IT IS COMING FROM A SUSTAINABLE SOURCE AND IT IS CO2 NEUTRAL?
