Current and Projected Costs for Biofuels from Algae and Pyrolysis

Consumer Energy Report -- A reader recently called my attention to a new and very interesting presentation from the Department of Energy’s Biomass Program:
Biofuels Design Cases
The presentation explored the question of whether the U.S. government is spending money on the right technology pathways. Costs were presented for biofuel produced from pyrolysis, algae, Fischer-Tropsch (FT), and methanol-to-gasoline (MTG) routes.
I want to share several slides from the presentation to give an idea of what the DOE thinks about the costs for producing biofuels via the various pathways. The first slide below shows the projected cost of production of biofuels via MTG, pyrolysis, and FT for the “Nth Biorefinery Plant”

I hope other people are happy with having their tax money spent on egghead analyses like this from a government agency. It doesn't particularly thrill me, considering how all this would get done naturally and without a dime of tax money by the energy industry as companies scrambled to find the most economical solutions for customers in order to gain competitive advantage.
