ABG POLL RESULTS: Biodiesel Feedstock

On the 17th January we posed the question "What will the majority of biodiesel be made from by 2010?", and asked you to vote for your favourite answer.

After receiving 172 votes, the results are in and it looks like algae was the big winner with 43 percent of the the votes, soundly beating out plug-in electrics and the other feedstocks listed.

Analysis: With the news that China is ramping up rapeseed (canola) biodiesel production, I think canola could be the winner in 2010 because it will take time for algae to really come on-line. By 2015 though, I think algae could clinch the title.
