Algal Biodiesel Project Leaders Are Invited to Sea

Patrick Hatcher, the ODU faculty member who is executive director of the Virginia Coastal Energy Research Consortium, and Jes Sprouse, the entrepreneur who is working with Hatcher to develop Algal Farms Inc. in Prince George County, prepare to leave the Navy's Norfolk Air Station on a C-2 Greyhound COD to visit the aircraft carrier Dwight D.
