Eco-business Branson pledges $3bn to tackle climate change!
posted by on Friday, September 22, 2006 - 11:22 AM

gfoat writes "Sir Richard Branson joined global warming activists yesterday by committing $3bn (£1.6bn) to tackle climate change. The billionaire pledged all profits from his Virgin air and rail interests over the next 10 years! Much of the investment will focus on biofuels, an alternative to oil-based fuels made from plants. He is investing the cash in his renewable energy business, Virgin Fuel. Virgin made its first investment in green fuels this month by injecting $60m into Cilion, a California-based venture that plans to make bioethanol. Cilion plans to build and operate modular, standardized ethanol plants of about 55 million gallon annual capacity that intend to be greener & cheaper than standard corn-to-ethanol plants. Cilion plans to have 7 to 8 plant units in production by 2008 for a total of 440 million gallons per year capacity. The first three plants are expected to be in California. When fully operational, ethanol produced by Cilion is expected to be price competitive per mile driven with gasoline even if oil prices drop to $40 per barrel. Speaking at a news conference for Bill Clinton's Clinton Global Initiative organisation in New York yesterday, Sir Richard Branson is reported to have said adults had a duty to pass on a "pristine" planet to the next generation. More details can be found on the BBC & Guardian sites."
