Algae as Future Biofuel

Interesting and promising.

Micro algae are considered to be a promising future source of biofuel. The productivity of algae is much higher than that of normal crops, and they do not compete with food production. In order to develop the best possible production system for algae, the University of Wageningen opened a new and unique pilot plant: AlgaePARC (Algae Production and Research Centre). AlgaePARC is the first plant in the world where four distinct algae production systems will be meticulously tested and compared.
