Ah..Soylent Green. If they can hook up with G-Oil rendering plants ..we could be on to something. No, seriously, I hope that this proves to be a decent "net gain" enterprise. It's extremely hard to "manufacture" energy cheaply.

Algae oil is about the most sensible "alternative" liquid fuel that I can think... Particularly when sited near power stations that have waste heat, and quite concentrated CO2 streams.

Now just produce 20M barrels a day of it ..there's enough ocean, I guess ..but what do you have to do to it to get that level of yield. What other life form is going to step aside to enable this? Looks like China is way ahead of us.
