    "Synthetic Genomics "new" algae technology"==>means GMO microalgae but not necessariliy " their ingenious photo bioreactor system in greenhouses". I would like to ask you a simple question about your efficient (!) Bio-Reactor: how much mixing energy you need inside your PBR to produce 1 kg dry biomass? if it is less than 20MJ, I, like others, would be more than happy.
