The Colorado Center for Biorefining and Biofuels (C2B2) and Solix BioSystems had their own Summer of Algae event at the Colorado School of Mines yesterday. Researchers and company executives met with local and federal official to show the latest algae research activity within Colorado, discuss commercialization prospects, and answer questions regarding the emerging biofuels industry in the state.
Research scientists and company officials discussed the role their technology can play in creating jobs and economic growth in Colorado as well as the larger role the technology can play in addressing global fuel and food issues.
Several Denver-area news stations aired segments about the tour. Check out the story on CBS Channel 4:
