The company which said that it can cut the the cost of algae production by 90 to 95 percent is called Solix Biofuels.

For growth and food, algae needs carbon dioxide. Solix said that it has founded a way to reducing costs drastically by injecting CO2 inside the tank in a passive manner. Solix Biofuels makes its bioreactors out of flat plates in comparison with other algae fuel companies that use bioreactors made up of plastic bags hung from racks.

In comparison with Amyris which says it can make 650 to 850 gallons per acre the Solix company claims that it can produce 1,500 gallons per acre in optimal conditions. Until next year, Solix will build a five acre growth.
