I was not aware of that news, but I'm glad to read about it. It sounds like that 100% fixed carbon diversion puts them at nearly 14% conversion efficiency. That's really encouraging and I hope for the best for Joule. Even before this multi-fold increase I had high hopes for them. The one downside I've come across about them (and which is indirectly inferred by another company) is the need for natural gas to cool down the process on days in which its too hot. Hopefully engineering practices will be able to improve upon this as well though to minimize this cost. Joule will be a very promising company when they go public.... I just hope they prove out their technology further & line up some prospects before they do.
what PR? You mean that contributor-submitted Forbes piece? More like just another well-timed investor speaking his mind. Nice to see.
seems like an offshoot of the prior trademark: Algapure
They're probably debating the final name still. Sounds like an ingredients brand for cleaning products.
I'm curious whats going on with their biomass trademarks. Particularly Algaform & Algafiber. They really haven't talked about those yet, and I expect that they will eventually. Its possible that right now those co-products aren't the highest & best use of the biomass. Maybe thats why Origin Algae was more recently trademarked, as that seems to be focused on using the biomass on animal feed - a possibly higher valued product.
"OILS PRODUCED BY ALGAE FOR USE IN THE MANUFACTURE OF SOAPS, DETERGENTS, CLEANSING MATERIALS, SOLVENTS, DEGREASING PREPARATIONS, SURFACTANTS, OIL-BASED PRODUCTS, PLASTICS AND POLYMERS, AND COATINGS"
Nice to see more branding work being done in the background. Filing date of the trademark was done on 7-24-14
1. Maxx shold spend some time comparing szyms 5 reviews to his baby AMRS' 18 equally bad reviews. "Wow awful" to that.
2. I actually liked reading those reviews. Shows a promising technology that is delivering and a company willing to stay on its toes rather than becoming a bureacracy. Focused on optimizing opportunity. Of course you have to read in between the lines to see that.
Your own fears are reflected in that opinion. But the truth is the short interest has more than doubled and the price has stayed the same from last year. A wider investor audience has countered the increased short interest and share count.
Accumulation is going on for both shorts and longs. I would bet that the longs can hold on longer.....
Just look the following up for example. Way too hard to research on a phone....
The method of claim 30, wherein the food product is a nondigestible fat substitute, a peanut butter, a margarine, an edible spray oil, a low calorie nut product, a reduced calorie product, a structural fat, an edible oil mixture, or a spread.
Hi lbs, it's too hard to dig it up for you over a smartphone but just trust me when I say I've seen it before. I'm sure this is all part of their structured fats program and cocoa butter is just a primary example of the types of butters they'll be making. Look up the food applications and you'll see reference to other things ie olive oil butter etc. Obviously cocoa butter is a primary example given its composition and value. But the patents suggets there are many products to be made including an algal butter/margarine concept.
This is absolutely not the cocoa butter they're talking about. They're talking about going after butter itself. Patents and applications confirm it.
Appendix 1 is interesting.... i had no idea they were possibly planning on reinforcing Bacon w/ protein =)
