Biofuels like the ethanol in U.S. gasoline could get cheaper thanks to experts at Rutgers University-New Brunswick and Michigan State University.
But hitherto, converting organic waste to fuel has not been economically viable. Excessively high temperatures and too much energy are required.
Biodiesel vaporises at higher temperatures, which can lead to problems with electronic fuel injection systems and particulate filters.
Biomass feedstocks are plant and algal materials that can be used to create biofuels, renewable chemicals, and other biobased products.
Blends of biofuels and conventional kerosene represent an important intermediate stage – some of their properties correspond to those of normal kerosene
Essentially, if we were to use the hydrocarbon oils from this alga to be a renewable fuel source, there would be no need to change any kind of infrastructure for making the fuel.
