Bill Gates Invests in Algae Fuel
I’m not sure which is more newsworthy, the fact that Bill Gates has invested in algae fuel technology or the fact that you can actually get 91 octane fuel from algae in the first place! I wonder what the exhaust from algae fuel smells like. Ewww.
The lowly algae is the renewable fuel industry's great green hope. Because algae is rich in oil and can grow in a wide range of conditions, many companies are betting that it can create fuels or other chemicals cheaper than existing feedstocks.
