Weekly News Roundup

The green blog needs a vacation...badly! I am getting a lot of information which I can't even post in the blog due to multitudes of deadlines. But I will try really, really hard to post some of them this week. In the meantime, check out my article this week about China's renewable energy market on ICIS Chemical Business. My article on next generation liquid biofuels will be out on October 5, so stay tune for that.

Another announcement is that ICB has a new facebook page (which I designed myself) where you can check out all our blogs, article links, videos and even twitter snippets. Be a fan! (Pleeaase! lol!).

For now, here are this week's news roundup:

BP is selling its wind power interests in India, BP Energy India Private Limited (BPEIPL), which owns and operates three wind farms in India with a total generating capacity of approximately 100 megawatts, to Green Infra Limited. BP said it will concentrate its global wind development activities in the US.

Owen's green glass fiber plant
Owens Corning will re-start its glass fiber reinforcement manufacturing facility in Vado, Italy, during the fourth quarter, which has been converted to the company's patented boron and fluorine-free Advantex® technology platform. The platform offers smaller environmental footprint compared with standard E-glass processes.
