Very cool stuff - I saw some other posts this week about China having to crack down on "solar pollution" due to the lax disposal policies of the silicon tetrachloride used in manufacturing...Biosolar sounds like a great step towards not only green operation with solar panels, but greener production.

Also, I thought you might be interested in checking out a green product review/research site I just launched. We're just getting off the ground, so any participation and feedback would be amazing. It's also a great way to promote the blog. I'll hope to see you on the site - take care.
