The purpose of this board is to not only examine companies in the algae to biofuel sector, but to see the "cream" rise to the top.  This sector is a whole new industry that can change the way we fuel the world from petroleum to algae based biofuel.  Over time we should be able to tell who the winners and the losers are in this industry by cross examining all the players in this game.  Some of the companies listed may be in very questionable situations and being listed does not mean they are endorse in any way.  They are there because they "appear" to be players.  But we will see who the "top" players are in this alternative energy sector as time goes on and that is the point of this board.  Great DD skills are called for!  Do not use this board to promote any one company but use it as a cross examination for all companies.
