I trust that you are enjoying the holiday break, and that you are getting ready for a great year ahead.
The Top 100 People in Bioenergy, 2011-12
Once again you named me to this list, and I'm honored and thankful.
With several high-profile IPOs last year, Bioenergy is becoming Big Business. Which makes it all the more amazing that I'm even on this list.
OriginOil isn't a big company. But we are working hard to make algae into Big Business in 2012!
Why 2012 will be the Year of Algae
In the closing months of 2011, we've seen these game-changing events:
- commercial flights fueled by an algae blend.
- a record purchase of algae-based fuel for the Navy's Green Fleet.
- the funding of a joint venture to help build bio-refineries using algae blends.
- a research program to blend algae with many other potential fuels.
Blending algae with other feedstocks is jump-starting it into a major role in creating biocrude.
From there, you get gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, plastics... anything you can get from petroleum.
The game is changing, fast.
Accelerating Pace in 2012
After such a hot end of 2011, do you think things will slow down in 2012?
On the contrary, I am sure that things will speed up.
Do you think that we will play a part in this speedup? I will let you draw your own conclusions!
May you and yours have a safe and successful 2012.
