Algal Biofuels is the Future

How Algae Works in the Real World

Algae is EVERYWHERE that there is water. Why not use it to make biofuel? Algal biofuels are made from harvested algae, so by using it to create biodiesel, it helps clean up the water on the Earth.

Algal Biofuels Advantages and Disadvantages

  • Algae can use waste water and waste gas as a source of nutrients.
  • Algae is continuous, unlike crops which have a limited number of harvest per year, however harvesting the algae is expensive.
  • Algae can produce biodiesel more directly than oily plants so the processing stages would be less complicated.
