Good morning!

First Round Victory!

Saturday, Biofuels Digest reported that “OriginOil upset #6 seed Genencor, winning 56-44.” OH YEAH!

Now for the second round. As Biofuels Digest puts it this morning, “Match-ups for this week… feature all the heavyweights… plus fast-rising stars like KiOR, Joule and OriginOil…

Sure enough, we’re now matched up with… #3 seed Sapphire Energy!

Now — we think the people at Sapphire are great, so this is a tough one. At the same time… well, we have to attack all-out.

Once again, dear reader, this one is in your hands.

Haven’t done it yet? Now we need you.

Australia News

I’m in Melbourne, on my last leg of a fantastic Australia trip. Very promising strategic talks with MBD Energy, and our engineering partner, Front Line Engineering.

Last week we visited Tarong Power Station in Queensland — full video and photo coverage are coming from that, and the whole Australian week.

Until then, here’s an exclusive peek at the site. (Be sure to hit Play to review both captioned photos.)

You’re looking at the beginning of something huge: one hectare (2.5 acres) of next-generation algae growth and harvesting.

We feel incredibly lucky to play a key role here.

From Down Under,

Riggs and team
