Algae biodiesel: a feasibility report
Algae biodiesel: a feasibility report

23rd April 2012

Organisation(s): Springer Science+Business Media

Topic(s): Economics, Fuel switching, Renewables

This paper, from Chemistry Central Journal, explores the costs and suitability of using algae as a biofuel. A light review of the current research is followed by an overview of production. The paper concludes with an economic feasibility assessment stating that open-pond algae as a biodiesel fuel is close to feasibility as a full replacement for diesel, but not without subsidies, considerable technology improvements, or increases in the price of fuel.
