Is it possible to use seaweed as fuel to power cars?

    Bio Architecture Lab from Berkeley, CA thinks so! The lab has developed a way to turn macroalgae into ethanol, and is partnering with Norwegian oil company Statoil to start marketing.  About two thousand gallons of ethanol can be made from each acre of seaweed, as carbohydrates from the seaweed are extracted and the sugars are broken down for fermentation.

    There is also discussion of algae being able to be the next new renewable energy source, research is being done outside of El Paso, Texas.
