NewsMakers: Paul Woods

Founder and CEO of Algenol Biofuels.

Paul Woods

Lytle: You expect to be able to get produce this fuel for a dollar a gallon.

Woods: Correct.

Lytle: So the question would be, why aren’t the big guys ... why isn’t Shell, Exxon-Mobil, doing this instead of you?

Woods: Well actually we do have some of the biggest companies in the world as partners. Exxon has their own algae program with a company is San Diego called SGI. Recently one of their lead people came and joined Algenol.

Lytle: And you’re working together.

Woods: So we’re really quite happy ... well, we kind of stole him ... I wouldn’t call that working together.

We had though reached out to the other algae companies because, you know what? What we really want is to see the algae industry become successful.

Look, if I can make a dollar a gallon of fuel, that’s good for America.

So as I see it, any steps that we can take in order to get this technology deployed, efficiently and quickly, we’re going to take all of those steps that we can.
