Biofuels from algae - A first attempt

With the financial support of the EU, a Spanish water company has recently produced the first micro-algae for biofuels use with wastewaters.
Despite being at a very preliminary stage, the ‘All gas’ project showed great potential in terms of methane produced per biomass of algae, between 200-300 litres of gas per kg of biomass. The fact is particularly important when considering the debate over the production of food crops for energy purposes, the increasing pressure over land and the recent global food prices crisis.
Experts underlined the need to improve scale and efficiency of production. To this respect, if the project continues giving satisfying results, an algae transformation plant will be constructed in the South of Spain.
