products will be price competitive within the
decade.
• Production and hiring will increase in both
the short and long term.
• Supportive federal policy would accelerate
hiring and production.
Industry insiders broadly believe that:
On Track to Price Competitiveness
• More than 83% say it is likely that algae based fuels will by cost
competitive by 2020.
• More than 40% of producers say the price will be below $5.00 per gallon
by 2020.
Given what you know about the algae industry, in your opinion, how likely is it that
algae-based fuels will be cost-competitive with fossil fuels by 2020?
