Algae Biofuel

What is it?

Algae fuel or algal bio fuel is an alternative to fossil fuel that uses algae as its source of natural deposits. This fuel is inherently renewable and yields from algae are between 10 and 100 times as high as those of traditional biofuels.

The future of renewable energy!

A land area three times the size of the United States would be needed to replace all fuel used in transportation with corn-derived fuel. However using algae, only an area the size of Maryland would be needed.

This biofuel is carbon dependent, has relatively high upfront costs, and it's not yet clear what the cost per gallon will be yet.
