Blue Marble Energy

  Hi guys -- watch this video Blue Marble has produced on using anaerobes to create substitutes for petrochemicals (particularly esters) and check out their site. Mike Rimoin, our Solar CITIES colleague who worked with us in Egypt and with whom we just built a bio...gas reactor last week, used to work for Blue Marble and introduced us to their CSO the other day. I hope we can get them some psychrophiles to experiment with and join them in promoting anaerobic ecologies to help shift our economy from fossil dependency to renewable interdependencies.

I love their terminology, "utilizing hybridized bacterial consortia to produce specialty biochemicals and renewable biogas." The idea of "hybridized consortia" is even more interesting than saying "using an ecology of bacterial solutions" in the way it fits in with corporate terminology. And it speaks to the "bacterial consciousness oriented midi chlorians" in me :)
