Oil From Algae: CO2 Reduction Bio-Diesel Output

  • The yields of oil and fuels from algae are much higher (10-100 times) than competing energy crops
  • Algae can grow practically anywhere, thus ensuring that there is no competition with food crops.
  • Algae are excellent bioremediation agents - they have the potential to absorb massive amounts of CO2 and can play an important role in sewage and wastewater treatment.
  • Algae are the only feedstock that have the potential to completely replace world's consumption of transportation fuels.
  • Algae are already being used in a wide variety of industries and applications, and many newer applications are being discovered. Such a wide range of end-uses enable companies to produce both fuels and non-fuel products from the same algae feedstock
