    With this brand new combination, it helps to reduce the carbon offset! Honestly, I personally loved this concept very much.

    You can blend all sorts of organics into fuel but it doesn’t make it viable. At least they’re trying to find a good solution thouggh so every step in the right direction is welcome!

    How much of a difference does 5% algae make anyway? There are other biofuels that are much better suited for automobiles.

    This is a great post.. Very informative… I can see that you put a lot of hard work on your every post that’s why I think I’d come here more often. Keep it up! By the way, you can also drop by my blogs. They’re about Vegetable Gardening and Composting. I’m sure you’d find my blogs helpful too.

    That’s really heartening to note. This is a good trend. If algae can fuel our cars in the future, we can hope to reduce a lot of pollution to the atmosphere and cut costs on fuel as well. Hope this technology takes off and becomes main stream. We run a global sustainability directory where we highlight such innovative designs that help save the environment.

    There was a program that I watched on the discovery channel which had algae on the roof tops on a Texas facility that turned algae into electricity. I wonder if this is the same process.

    Algae fuel…neat concept! With all of these cleaner & more sustainable technologies, people are slowly running out of excuses to not be sustainable!
