nbc_2009It’s been over two weeks since we’ve had any Daryl Hannah news — and my shaking hands were definitely signaling a withdrawal. Thankfully, the clock has been reset with word that the eco-friendly actress is set to appear at the 2009 National Biodiesel Conference and Expo. Joining her to promote the biodiesel groove will also be Grammy Award-winning artist Melissa Etheridge. More than 400 booths showcasing the latest in biodiesel products and services.

Want another reason to attend? You can take a spin ’round San Francisco in Solazyme’s Jeep Liberty diesel SUV powered by 100% Soladiesel™ biodiesel derived directly from algae. To find out more, check out the official site here.

    biodiesel ecofriendly ? growing biodiesel crops takes a lot of space (luckely there is still enough useless Rainforest where we can grow it, eh…) and already is competing with foodcrops, with higher foodprices as a result, esp. in the underdeveloped countries.(cuz farmers change from foodcrops to fuelcrops)
    all cars running on fuelcrops would be an eco disaster.

    also fats from animals from slaughterhouses are used for biodiesel and “green” electricity powerplants.

    I hope planting hemp as a feed stock is number one priority on this conference’s list. Because making bio-diesel from GMO corn and soy, is jumping out of the frying pan into the fire!
