More on algae biodiesel sources

It looks like New Mexico State University (NMSU), located in Southern New Mexico is getting onto the agae-as-fuelsource bandwagon as well. They have a 1/4-acre denonstration pond due for completion in March of this year, and a 100-acre pond will begin construction in 2008. It looks like they have everything they need: "we have sunlight and space, and we have a brackish and saline water supply." Yummy, brackish water - sounds like heaven for an algae farmer.

Since we'll be going through Las Cruces on our drive in late April, I think we should swing by the demonstration pond, talk to the researchers, etc.
