Algae into Biodiesel

(UPDATE 27 November 05: See my newer post "Direct Biological Production of Diesel".)

Here is a c|net story on efforts to capture power plant emissions using algae, which is then  processed into biodiesel.  It would be interesting to see how the numbers work out for the amount of total energy added by the sun versus the electricity and chemical energy required to convert the dead algae into fuel.
