    Finally! Yep, for years now the first thought that pops into my head upon waking is “Dear Jesus, let today be the day there is finally a biofuel I can get excited about.” Thank you sweet Geebus.

    When they’re selling this in industrial quantities and making a solid profit for a few years, and it’s reported on by multiple credible sources, I’ll consider getting excited.

    In the mean time, marketing claims, green dreamer hopium, etc., not so much. The track record for such “announcements” coming to useful commercial production (i.e. profitable over time) makes dismal look fantastic.

    This stuff will never scale. Look at corn ethanol and its huge footprint but still smallish contribution to the liquid fuels supply. That’s some egg on the face alright just the wrong face. LOL.

    Just use all the waste oil from KFC.
    The supply is virtually infinite.

    The only biofuels I get excited about are mashed potatoes with gravy and roast chicken or beef.

    That’s about it.

    I suppose a good chef’s salad will work too.

    “Some of these science whores will talk about algae ponds for solar/wind back up energy, what they don’t tell you is that humanity would need a country the size of Argentina to do this.”

    Where does the “free, extra, additional” oil in the algae come from?

    Hey Rocky! Watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat…ROAR!!

    Dozens of reasons why the world doesn’t run on algal biofuels

    I read this article…now I demand my excitement!

    Important to understand the motivation: Oil refiners would love to have us chase anything else but the proven, existing, renewable, environmentally friendly, cleaner burning, protein concentrating, cheap carbohydrate consuming, obesity & diabetes epidemic countering, brilliant, and practical solution that is corn ethanol…because it moves profits from big company pockets to rural American farmers.

    …and in rereading my post, I can see I left that thought completely unfinished. (sorry, words are hard.)

    Exxon will spend a great deal of time looking for distractions (e.g. algae, cellulosic ethanol, superman’s sweat, etc.) in the attempts to undermine support for the existing corn ethanol program that has successfully moved 10% of the US gasoline market away from the large refiners to small, local ethanol producers.

    It is easy to get distracted by the next greatest idea, but we need to be savvy about what is actually practical. Grain based ethanol has been made for thousands of years and is a far superior fuel from every perspective if one is willing to study more science and read less hype.
