Could this be THE solution to our energy independence?Submitted by Jefferson2 on Wed, 03/23/2011 - 12:25
I noticed a link that was provided by another member here (sorry I forget their name).
It is to a company that is doing revolutionary work in the bio fuel field. This is not just simple algae, but a modified organism that produces fuel directly without having to extract it, giving it a "direct to market" advantage. They claim to have a product that is up to 50 times more efficient than other biofuels, and can cost as low as 30 dollars a barrel.
I also found out that this company is building a pilot plant right here in my area, and that I have connections to the man who was responsible for bringing them here. (Thinking about a possible career change)
This seems like a very exciting development, and I wonder what your thoughts are. Part of me is discouraged because I can't help but think that this type of revolutionary technology will be suppressed somehow.
Check them out.
