Default Fuel from Algae!

Colorado Company to Take Algae-Based Fuel to the Next Level - NYTimes.com

I'm not sure if any of you have heard of this. But there's going to be a new bio-fuel made from a breed of algae. And no petrol is needed!

-Can be grown in small areas(no deforestation to plant biofuel)
-uses sun to breed the algae(free energy)
-algae feeds on CO2!(cleans the air!)


So what do you guys think. I know I'm still gonna hunker over a Tesla Roadster electric, but this would be nice if I get a Cessna one day!

I don't know much about the extraction cost yet, or the water used to grow them(possibly you can re-use the water!), but I'm interested in following the process as I'm saving up for some solar panels.

Not bad, as long as the area does remain small (and preferably within cities or whatever, lots of CO2 there anyway)...

Well, if it can be done in a garage, that would be so cool!

And as for the city thing, another plus! A Japanese guy, however is trying to use algae as a way to absorb CO2 around the city rather than using it for fuel.
