  • Does this mean we can begin to make our own fuel in the backyard?

    This is pretty interesting. Can it be for real?

        I've got some of the good race fuel algae in the pond behind my house...he he

              Sounds good, but how much will it cost by the time it gets from New Mexico to Michigan?

                  I've seen a LOT of different idea from salt water to magnets and this is the ONLY one that even seems remotely likely to happen!...but 20,000 gallons per acre per year??!!!! Insane if it's real.

                    I wonder what the cost will be per equivalent barrel of oil?

                    It does look promising....and much better than using food (corn) for fuel.

                      I saw a thing on National Geographic channel a while back that was very similar-IIRC they built one next to a power plant and were "feeding" the emissions from the plant to the algae to clean them up while harvesting fuel and feed from it.
