A specially engineered strain of yeast is used to break down the seaweeed, producing glucose and galactose, two sugars. Then a microbe called Saccharomyces cerevisiae ferments the sugars, making fuel. Until recently, fermenting galactose has been a very inefficient process, however, which can be the kiss of death when it comes to alternative energy. Luckily, a new strain of the microbe has been developed which more efficiently ferments galactose, making red seaweed a much more viable source of biofuel.
