Canvassing for Opinion - aka "Blairs Brain on Cannabis"

IMHO prohibition sentiment requires inherent addiction to status quo, an incapacity to visualise beyond the here and now and a desperate desire to know others might feel the same... Reform is not revolutionary, rather it is evolutionary. Having survived banging your head against a brick wall the evolutionist relishes having stopped. / Blair

FAS Releases New Report on Biomass, Waste-to-Energy

Frost and Sullivan (FAS) recently released a new report on the biopower industry titled "North American Biomass and Waste-to-Energy Markets," which found that the commercialization of many "promising biopower technologies," including pyrolysis, gasification, plasma gasification and anaerobic digestion, is dependent on "financial incentives from government sources."

"As institutional investors are reluctant to invest because of high upfront installation costs and lengthy periods for realizing returns, biopower owners are seeking financing from cooperatives, municipalities, counties and companies specializing in renewable energies," said FAS research analyst Patricia Seifert.

FAS said "new standards, legislation and tax incentives" are expected to create "strategic changes in several industries with respect to waste management which is likely to exert a positive influence on the market."

Additionally, the report noted that biopower companies offering "one-stop solutions," including design, installation, maintenance and financing, will capture "substantial market share."
