Are Algae the Future of Energy & Biodiesel?
Here's an interesting article/editorial on oil & energy from algae
. The editorial is essentially questioning why more focus and research dollars are not being spent on deriving oil, biodiesel and ethanol from algae...
It is interesting because the article states that algae appear to be the most biofuels feedstock, and is far more productive in terms of yield than palm or soy - in fact it says algae as feedstock are over 100 times more productive than soy! From the info presented, it appears that algae present the most realistic chance of being able to completely replace petro-fuels with biofuels. It is also interesting to note that the fossil oil we are using today was formed mainly from algae!
An insightful article for all those interested in suatainable alternative and renewable energy.
