Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am not a fan of bio-any-kind-of-fuel, on the grounds that planting over every square meter we can find with fuelcrops is not, in fact, good stewardship of the earth.

Doing something with the waste streams of food production is just good sense, but that does not scale - once you are planting crops solely to process them and burn them, the only green thing still associated with that policy is the chlorophyll in the monoultures killing ecosystems.  

All plans have consequences, of course, but at least lithium mining operations mostly wreck salt deserts and the metal can, and should, be recycled.
