Green fuel from an even greener source

One common complaint about "green" technologies such as electric cars is that production of such alternatives continue to harm the environment. Critics are quick to point out that coal-burning power plants continue to spew toxic wastes to generate electricity to charge an electric car.
Well, AutoblogGreen has posted about one company addressing the displaced-emissions issue: Biomass Investment Group, Inc (BIG) plans to build a power plant in Florida that uses E-grass as its fuel source. The CO2 exhaust released by the plant will be absorbed by the E-grass growing on site. According to BIG, this "closed loop" will save 20 billion tons of CO2 over the next quarter century.
