Peter Diamandis, of X Prize Foundation renown, guest speaker at the Dassault breakfast yesterday and writer of the headline above, is turning his attention to the challenge of developing jet fuels that are “good for the upper atmosphere, fuels that can recycle CO2 in the atmosphere.” The research centers on creating cells capable of absorbing CO2 and converting it into something usable as an energy source. Recognizing the work of Solazyme, he noted also that algae is promising as a renewable source, since one acre of the microbial crop could yield between 1,000 and 20,000 gallons of oil.
