This endless supply of new oil can be used for many products such as diesel, gasoline, jet fuel, plastics and solvents without the global warming effects of petroleum.

Our unique technology, based on algae, is targeted at fundamentally changing our source of oil without disrupting the environment or food supplies. http://www.investorideas.com/CO/OOIL/Default.asp and www.originoil.com.
