Another form of biofuels?
Check it out:
Critics of the Agriculture Department say the agency is literally “flushing taxpayer money down the toilet” by funding a multi-million project to turn feces and garbage into a source of renewable energy.
The USDA announced this week it is providing Fulcrum Sierra Biofuels with a $105 million loan to build a facility in Nevada that will attempt to turn municipal solid waste into jet and diesel fuel.
But the fiscally conservative Taxpayers Protection Alliance says the project smells like another Solyndra in the making. In 2011, the solar startup went out of business, costing taxpayers more than $500 million.
