Mass. Company making diesel with sun, water, CO2

Is this really the answer for the renewable energy dilemma? Joule Unlimited, the company that developed organism called cyanobacterium claims that the fuel produced is almost like diesel and ethanol. They make the fuel from natural resources such as sunlight, water and carbon dioxide. The most interesting thing is that they say, with the emergence of this new technology, they can eliminate the middle man!!! Who is the middle man?

The answer is “biomass”.
