Texas could be the pond scum capitol of the world
BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) - January 25, 2010 -- Pond scum could be powering our future.
That's what entrepreneur Brad Bartilson is hoping.
His company Photon8 has moved from New Jersey to South Texas.
Bartilson says Texas has more sunlight than New Jersey, which is essential to turning pond scum into biodiesel fuel.
Bartilson says Texas not only has lots sunlight, but cheap land for algae farms.
He tells a local paper, the Lone Star State could be a leader in algae-based fuels.
