The problem we face with fossil fuels being ultimately a finite resource has exposed our need for renewable fuels. But research is underway on new and more environmentally-savvy ways to fuel our growing planet – among them algal biofuels.
The situation is made more challenging with expected global population growth, increased pressures on food production and higher demand for energy and fuel.
Third-generation biofuels, such as algae, are created without interference with human food production or land use, and are the subject of current investigations for capture and use.
