Charlotte, NC –September 5, 2012. 

Charlotte’s first Eco-industrial Park, ReVenture Park, announced an agreement today with Renewed World Energies (RWE) to develop an algae-to-fuel pilot plant with plans to quickly expand into a full commercial scale bio-fuel facility.  RWE has been developing a commercially viable system to turn algae into cleaner burning fuel and high-energy feedstock for alternative energy plants. The patent pending systems will be used to create different strains of algae that will be utilized to create everything from transportation fuel to health supplements. The initial facility is expected to be operational Sept. 30th, 2012.

Stand Strong for Fuel Efficiency

Tell President Obama that you support increased fuel efficiency for cars.

This fall, President Obama proposed increased fuel efficiency standards of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025 for new cars and light trucks. Adopting these standards will save the average consumer up to $6,600 in fuel costs over the life of a model year 2025 vehicle. A 60-day public comment period opened Dec. 1, 2011, and ends Jan. 30, 2012.

The president needs to hear from you.

Without your comment, special interests could water down this proposal. Tell President Obama to keep the standards strong so Americans can save money at the pump, our country can import less oil, and our environment can be cleaner.

Send your comments to the president now—protect the 54.5 average mpg fuel efficiency standard!
