Biofuel company eyes area: If deal goes through, Saline County would be first site in nation for algae-based fuel

Green Star Products Inc. announced today, July 31, that EcoAlgae USA has received a signed resolution from the Saline County Commissioners to construct a commercial algae production facility in conjunction with an integrated biorefinery complex.

The EcoAlgae project will involve algae production at the heart of this biorefinery complex because its high production biomass feedstock only requires sunlight, CO2 and brackish or saltwater.

"(This will be) the first facility of its type in the nation," said Marshall-Saline Development Corporation Executive Director Roy Hunter, the man who spearheaded this project. "It's going to bring national recognition to Saline County as a renewable fuels region."

Great article HoosierRon.
Inspiring.

Just think.....
Every coal-fired power plant.
Every municipal water treatment plant.
Every sewer treatment facility.
Every ounce of what you and I pour down the drain on a daily basis.
Or the utility company pours into the air.
Can be made new again using algae.
Instead of hazy smog.
Instead of eutrophy of our pristine rivers, lakes and coastal waters, we can grow algae.

Ah, the possibilities.

So true plane, so true.

As you said - and making fuel - priceless.
