A fuel made from seaweed oil
Olivier Daniélo, Biofutur No. 255, May 2005, p33-37

Summary : In the context of climate change and the soaring price of a barrel of oil, biofuels are today presented as a sustainable energy alternative. Research is currently taking place on microscopic algae that are particularly rich in oils and whose yield per hectare is much better than that of sunflower or rapeseed. The industrial scale use of microalgae bioreactors, which trap CO [2] and NOx, is in full development in the United States.
