Jay Keasling on Bloomberg TV Makes Case for Biofuels




Comparing the making of biofuels to brewing beer, Jay Keasling, CEO of the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) and Berkeley Lab’s ALD for Biosciences, explained the benefits of using engineered microbes to synthesize advanced biofuels from non-food crops in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Bloomberg West” program. In the interview, Keasling pointed out that the carbon-neutrality and potential domestic production of advanced biofuels makes both good environmental and economic sense. “Instead of sending all this money (for fuel) to the Mid-East, we could be sending it to the Mid-West,” he said.
