    I personally think that this is "doubling down on dumb".... Solazyme's IPO was sold as an energy play. But there ex-factory cost for biodiesel is still too expensive; and probably will remain so, until the company wilts and dies. None of their products seem to be cost-competitive with readily available alternatives.... IJS For all of you who will proceed to flame me, because you simply want to believe that algal can work, please don't.
