Hartmut Michel, interviewed in 2008
Biofuels such as ethanol, biodiesel and biogas are no solution for the energy problems of the world at all, says Hartmut Michel. Their energy efficiency is far too low, therefore they are absolutely not worth the effort. Instead he favours other renewable energy sources like solar panels and wind power. Michel received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1988 together with Johann Deisenhofer and Robert Huber for the determination of the three-dimensional structure of a photosynthetic reaction centre.
