    I went to this, and overall it was time well spent. I’m not so sure about the Solartech guy who did a sales pitch for his product while dissin’ photovoltaics with grossly outdated efficiency stats, and what the hell makes a Synlawn “green” aside from the synthetic petrochemical products in it is beyond me– but overall it was a pretty cool event, and I got a free Sundance Channel The Green tote bag out of it.

    Oh yeah, and Tru biofuels had a Unimog (think three times the size of a hummer) parked in front of Epoxy Box. Even though it runs on waste veggie oil, that’s still a helluva lot of used veggie oil.
