91-octane from algae

Over on Wired.com: Sapphire Energy says it will be producing up to 10,000 barrels of carbon-neutral petroleum in the next five years. How? By extracting the oil from algae. That's biofuel made from pond scum. It sounds promising to me; algae should be able to grow with minimal energy inputs and with much less land use than even switch grass.
