Well, we all concentrate on getting rid of the stuff, but it may well soon be driving us to work!
Thought this extract from 'Processtalk' might be of interest! beats the hell out of chopping down rain forest to grow pine-oil
"2] Algae oil feedstock for biodiesel manufacturing
Algae is an alternative to popular feedstocks, like soybean, canola
and palm: ultrasonication improves the extraction of oil from the
algae cells and the conversion to biodiesel. In comparison to
traditional oil-seed crops, algae yields much more oil per acre. While
soybean typically produces less than 50 gallon of oil per acre and
rapeseed generates less than 130 gallon per acre, algae can yield up
to 10,000 gallons per acre. In particular diatoms and green algae are
good sources for the production of biodiesel."
Wonder what a field of Algae would look like??? :?:
