A step away from fossil fuels? Scientists breakdown plant material without chemicals for the first time | Daily Mail Online

Scientists have taken a major step towards reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, which could eventually save cash.
For the first time, researchers managed to break down raw biomass - plant material - without using chemicals.
It produced record amounts of clean liquid hydrocarbon fuel, and is an important development in a shift towards renewable energy, the scientists said.

Pretty interesting stuff here.  This could have vast economic and strategic implications.
