Over the past 5 years Shell has invested 1.7 billion dollars in
renewables, and specifically not in wind power or solar, but
in biomasses in order to find a viable alternative to oil and
continue to produce fuel for internal combustion engines.
I drawn this information from a short article appeared on Wednesday 18 March
on the Corriere della Sera (the major italian paper).
"More specifically looks at alternative fuels to petrol,
second generation fuels derived from biomasses, ie
cellulose and non-cereals. It will have to mean something! "
I do not love Shell or the world they represent, it must be
noted that where they invest their money, probably, that will be
the most likely future field of development.
