Fueling Oregon with Sustainable Biofuels

The Oregon Environmental Council has a new report they have recently published. Its an impressive document which covers a great deal of ground in a short number of pages. I'm only half way through it but I can tell you its worth the read if your into the subject.

Meticulously researched but easy to read. In depth citation while still being accessible as they compact many complex issues into a few paragraphs each. If you are doing any research paper on biofuels I recommend this document as a starting point. Daniel Gilman, the primary author, did an excellent job.

This pamphlet looks like a great starting off point for something much bigger. I realize that's not the way it normally works with research documents but I really like what I'm seeing and its really relevant to the debate going on nationally now. I also can't help but notice that most of this book could be exported to any state in the U.S. and still be just as relevant as it addresses the technological issues associated with biofuels.

Download the PDF here: Fueling Oregon with Sustainable Biofuels, October 2007.

Also worth checking out are many of the other research and informational projects the OEC has been involved in. Available from their website under Publications as well as the OEC's Biofuels4Oregon page which also offers a listserve for Oregon relevant biofuels information.
