We are pleased to announce that the first edition of THE LAW OF ALGAE is available now. The LAW OF ALGAE is a guide to the business and legal issues in developing a commercial scale algae biofuels facility. We are introducing THE LAW OF ALGAE in an on-line “wiki” format where the contents can be accessed at www.LawOfAlgae.com.  Because the processes, technologies, and issues are changing rapidly with the commercialization of algae, the wiki format enables us to update the book frequently to bring you the most current information. 

THE LAW OF ALGAE is one in a series of “LAW OF” books that Stoel Rives LLP has produced over the past five years. The others include THE LAW OF WIND—A Guide to Business and Legal Issues, LAVA LAW—Legal Issues in Geothermal Energy Development, THE LAW OF BUILDING GREEN—Business and Legal Issues of Sustainable Real Estate Development, THE LAW OF OCEAN AND TIDAL ENERGY—A Guide to Business and Legal Issues, LEX HELIUS:  THE LAW OF SOLAR ENERGY—A Guide to Business and Legal Issues, The Law of Cooperatives, and SHOW ME THE MONEY—The Law of the Stimulus Package. If you are interested in any of these books, please visit our website at http://www.stoel.com/lawofseries.aspx to request a copy.
