Five Innovations to Look For in Algae Biofuels
Here are my top five innovations to look for in algae-based biofuels in the New Year:
—The first synthetic algal genome.
—The first significant scale-up of algae biofuel production.
—The first clinical trial of an algae-based therapeutic.
—The introduction of several new algae-based nutraceuticals.
—Oil to top $120 a barrel, and with that a much broader realization that we really are running out of the good stuff.
