The Stockholm Water Prize is the "Nobel" of the environmental industry, specifically for water and wastewater engineering greatness. A good friend of mine, Takashi Asano, won it some years back. It is a very high prestige award. According to the Associated Press, and Carlos David Mogollon's coverage in WaterWorld Online, this year's laureate, John Anthony Allen "launched into a tirade against biofuels similar to that of the Singapore International Water Week prize winner" earlier this year, Mogollon reports. Mogollon continues, "Allan, a professor at King's College London and head of its Water Research Group, noted that the amount of water that goes into production of biofuels takes it well past a net energy loser not to mention its impact on the environment and world food supplies/prices, calling the drive toward increased production 'too frightening to even begin to realize,' according to an Associated Press report.
