I’m in Winnipeg, Manitoba today to deliver the opening keynote at BioFibe 2011. One of the more significant trends I’ll be discussing is synthetic biology. To better appreciate the field’s vast potential, consider this recent quote from the October 17, 2011 Wall Street Journal article, A Faster Path to Biofuels:
“The technology has the exciting potential to significantly transform the economics of the biofuels industry.”
Further imagine then the possibility of creating commercially-scalable amounts of sustainable fuel from nothing more than water, sunlight and carbon dioxide and you can begin to appreciate how it might transform the “fossil fuel” industry!
