    Proponents of the use of algae biofuels estimate yields of 10,000 gallons per acre annually, a rate that is a great deal higher than any other biofuel out there, including those made from corn and soybeans. Estimates for the next few years are unclear, as this depends on how quickly this alternative fuel catches on, as more space is needed to cultivate the algae and convert it to biofuels. Currently, algae biofuels are not cost-effective, and specialists will need to find ways to reduce these costs before this alternative can be considered for mass-production.
