Well they aren’t really algae fuels, but biofuel can be produced from the right strains of algae. Our societies consume fossil hydrocarbons to function, using it for everything from plastics and fertilizers to generating the energy we use for lighting, heating and transportation. Sustainable alternatives to the hydrocarbon merry-go-round are desperately needed, and algae fuels may well be part of the answer.
I have followed David Sieg for a number of years and he has produced an array of ‘how to’ books on the home-scale production of biofuels and biodiesel. It is worth visiting his site and looking over this amazing repository of practical information at making-biodiesel-books.com.
