On this episode we're talking about biology. Not your high school biology, though; we're talking about biotechnology and biofuels with Paul Winters, Director of Communications, and Erick Lutt, Director of Industrial and Environmental Policy, for BIO, the Biotechnology Innovation Organization. Paul and Erick start off with the basics of how agricultural products such as corn are converted into biofuels such as ethanol. Then the discussion covers how biofuels are more climate friendly than fossil fuels; how renewable fuel standards have impacted the biofuels industry both domestically and abroad; how the current political dynamic looks for biofuel support; why BIO believes the federal government should continue to support development and production of biofuels; and closes with a prediction about biochemical production and use of biofuels in the aviation industry.
