Weekly News Roundup

This week, the Green Blog will have guest blogger (and ICB global editor) Joseph Chang reporting from Sao Paulo, Brazil, about the country's development of renewable chemicals and fuels based on sugarcane feedstock. He was invited by the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association (UNICA) to learn more about sugarcane-based flex fuel ethanol facilities and hopefully sugarcane-based plastic production as well. Stay tune for those!

The green blogger was also able to interview the officials of start-up green chemistry company Rivertop Renewables last week, and will post that today.

Before all these good stuff will happen, first here are this week's news roundup:

Fiberglass recycling expands
Owens Corning is increasing the recycled content in its fiberglass insulation and masonry products. The company's residential and commercial insulation products in North America now are made of at least half recycled glass content (minimum 50%).

Gas and algae collaboration
Linde Group and Algenol Biofuels formed a joint development project in order to identify the optimum management of carbon dioxide and oxygen for Algenol's algae and photobioreactor technology.
