The Rhyme of the Ancient Biofuel

Recently I read an article on, a web publication based on the National Biodiesel Board which is a national trade association representing the biodiesel industry as the coordinating body for research and development in the US . The NBB was started in 1992 by soybean commodity groups that were funding biodiesel research and development programs. “NBB’s membership is comprised of state, national, and international feedstock and feedstock processor organizations, biodiesel suppliers, fuel marketers and distributors, and technology providers.”

The article focused on  Biofuels and its correlation with clean H2O. The NBB’s Director of Sustainability, Dan Scott is the author and he goes into detail first about how the use of biofuels uses alot less H2O to produce and that it has biodegradable properties that do not pollute the water like that of regular fuel. Dan references the Rhyme of the Ancient and it’s most famous line, “Water Water Everywhere, Nor any a drop to drink,” this is appropriate because Dan says that the future of clean water is hand in hand with the future of clean fuel to make the water. Dan used the national water day (march 22) as a launch pad for his call for clean biofuels.
