Phoenix based PetroSun has decided to build a new commercial scale algae biodiesel production facility in Alabama. After evaluating a number of locations, Alabama probably offered up the most cash and tax breaks to lure the company. PetroSun will be meeting with officials from the state, later in February to iron out the location details and start-up timing for the facility. It should be possible to produce thirty times more oil per acre from algae than is possible from current crops like soy and canola.
