How can algae fuel benefit the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    Fuel derived from algae has some very interesting possibilities attached to it.  Certain strains of algae can produce ten times more fuel per acre than the corn that is grown in order to produce ethanol can.  Also, the type of land that is used for algae propagation is typically poor-quality land that does not do well at all as farmland, so using it for algae will not take away valuable farm land or encroach upon native habitat.

    Algae also benefits the environment because it (could) lessen the need to drill, process, and transport oil all over the world. Algae cleans as much C02 out of the air as it puts out, so they end up being carbon neutral, which is much better than fossil fuels that just produce C02.
