    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.

    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'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.

    This is pretty interesting. Can it be for real?
