Are Algae Powered Vehicles a Possibility?

There are many ways of converting substances to biodiesel fuel, and researchers are continually finding new ways to use neat materials for gassing up vehicles. Algae are one example of a conceivable substance that seems to have some potential. When mixed with sunlight, bacteria and carbon dioxide, algae, in its water dense environment produces a lot of oil. In fact, an alga’s mass contains around 50% oil, which can be gathered, processed and converted into biodiesel fuel. Palm oils, in contrast, contain about 20% of convertible oil. Algae are naturally carbohydrate rich and can be turned into ethanol. Using algae as… read more
