Fuel Alternative From Algae

Algae fuel, also called algal fuel, oilgae or third generation biofuel, is a biofuel from algae. Compared with second generation biofuels, algae are high-yield high-cost (30 times more energy per acre than terrestrial crops) feedstocks to produce biofuels.

Since the whole organism converts sunlight into oil, algae can produce more oil in an area the size of a two-car garage than an entire football field of soybeans.

Algal fuels do not impact fresh water resources, and can use ocean and wastewater.
