Algae are so prolific at producing oil (7,500 gallons of fuel per acre per year) that you could displace 100 percent of the petroleum that the United States consumes for transportation in a given year on a little more than 1 percent of our total landmass. Soybeans, the main source of biodiesel in the United States, produce only 50 gallons of biodiesel per acre per year—roughly 150 times less than algae. - GOOD.IS
My friend Kyle Lawson has been blabbing on about this green stuff for years. He even did a project about it (idfarmer). Way to stay ahead of curve buddy, the world knows you did it first.
