From the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy:
You’re looking at the literal definition of green fuel that could play a big part in increasing America’s #energy independence. A recent Department of Energy funded report said that 5% of the United States’ imported oil for transportation could be replaced with American-grown #biofuels from #algae (pictured). Our office continues to support research to make algae fuel more affordable. This week, we announced new research funding geared towards reducing the modeled price of algae-based biofuels to less than $5 per gallon, so eventually this fuel source can compete with traditional petroleum-based motor fuel.
