That’s the message that a number of trade organizations in Maine are trying to get out to entrepreneurs statewide:
“I’m a poster child for a Maine business that can take advantage of the Kyoto agreement,” said Paul Nace, president of Maine BioProducts LLC, which is developing a biorefinery in western Maine that uses forest materials to make an additive to increase the performance of biodiesel.
Nace made his comments Thursday at a program to help businesses glimpse the economic potential of global climate change. And the meeting’s message was clear: countries that have signed the Kyoto agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions are eager for services and products that favor renewable energy.
It’s great to see normally conservative trade groups recognizing this potential! Let’s hope we see more events like this nationwide. From the Bangor Daily News via ClimateArk.
