A Peek Inside the ExxonMobil/Craig Venter Algae Project

I nudged the wonderful Jane Van Ryan at the API last week shortly after the press release came out about ExxonMobil and Craig Venter’s SGI setting out with $600 million to try to get algae sourced oils into the market. Even at ExxonMobil, $600 million is a sizeable amount of money, with a certain amount of explaining to be done with the shareholders. So to sharpen up the points I’ve been contacted by ExxonMobil to see what questions might get answered. Not all of them to be sure, proprietary things are going to get in the way.
