    Both the road map and the additional $ 24 m over and above the $ 148 awarded / granted is old news.

    In fact we even discussed that the Algae road map took 18 months to table, doesnt give any numbers or quantities of algae that will be produced.
    At best it tells people to go back to the drawing board and do fundamental research.

    Not necessarily very bright for algae fuel industry. It is only companies like Solazyme that is keeping the hopes alive for algae oil.

    Baring the grant for Cellna, the other two grants are in my opinion for the ability to scale.
