Picture a liquid fuel that is derived from the same feedstocks as cellulosic ethanol (switchgrass, sugar cane, corn stover) but contains 50% more energetic content and is made via a process that uses 65% less energy.

If these guys can do half of what they say they can, then I say invest. Now. Their proclamations put them way ahead of the curve as far as industrial microbial production is concerned. Their claim to tunable products based on manufactured organisms is, frankly, very hard to believe.
