Episode Description

A deep dive into the fascinating world of ethnaol as we seek to clean our air, and then onto the fast-growing world of engineered carbon to improve our soils. In our opening segment this morning as we explore the growth of ethanol not only as a domestic US industry but as a stellar performer in generating US exports and addressing the balance of carbon in the sky trade is Emily Skor, she’s the new CEO at Growth Energy, a leading renewable fuels trade group. Later in the program we’ll continue looking carbon — in this case, adding carbon to the soil to improve plant productivity and reducing water use. We'll look at engineered soil carbon, with Wes Bolsen from CoolPlanet talking about the new generation of carbon soil products — how they work and who they work for — from hobby gardeners to commercial agriculture.
