Watch this video and tell me what you think. I think it looks promising and it looks like it can be done for about $2 at the pump (I’m guessing here).
While you’re at it, watch this short video too:
I thought the last video was interesting when he talked about the gallon yield per acre of various biofuel crops:
Soy 48 gallons per acre
Rapeseed (canola oil) 127 gallons per acre
Algae 10,000 gallons per acre
For more information, here’s some other interesting articles I found this evening:
The first one is a blog post I found on Gas 2.0 (cool name for a blog) from late March about the first algae biodiesel plant going live on April 1st.
The second is an article from January, 2007 with some background information on making biofuel from algae.
The third piece is an interesting post highlighting 15 algae startup companies.
