Bilski had developed a hedging algorithm to eliminate volatility in consumer energy costs.

The minutes state a major source of uncertainty cited by the FIFRA SAP is "the lack of … [Read more...] about TSCA Update August 15, 2016: Federal Issues; FDA; EPA; Nanotechnology; Renewable Products; Hazardous Materials Transportation
