Good morning!I'm back from my European trip! Mostly I was in Amsterdam, where I spoke at the World Refining Association's Sixth Annual Biofuels 2011 Conference. More on this soon...
It's great to be back.

This Month in "Algae Business"
My monthly column gives me a chance to cover one algae business topic in depth. Thank you to William Laski & David Schwartz, Publishers of Algae Industry Magazine!
This month, I cover "Hydrotreating Algae for Jet Fuel", a big topic for our new industry. (Hydrotreating is a refining process).
I ask: "What’s prompting the military to take so proactive a role in generating algae oil supply?" Read the answer here.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
