Basics of Algae
Algae as Fuel:

Other Biofuels

The above does not exhaust the potential list of biofuels that can be derived from algae. Hydrogen production from algae has been studied for many years and could be successful with continued research and development. Many other biofuels are currently being developed from bacterial and yeast fermentations of sugars. Microalgae could also be used to produce these in the future, avoiding the need for the production of sugars by traditional crops. Indeed, the production of sugars themselves by microalgae is being proposed, sugars that would then be used in fermentations to produce biofuels. All in all, the potential of algae to produce a variety of fuels is yet to be fully explored.
