DailyDirt: Biofuels From Tiny Organisms

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Fossil fuels presumably came from decaying animal and plant matter, so it seems reasonable that there might be a way to replace old oils with freshly-grown biofuels. The trick is getting biological organisms to step up and start churning out fuels on a massive scale. Growing fuel from solar power, water and carbon dioxide would be a great solution, if the process didn’t require huge swaths of land and wasn’t insanely expensive. Here are just a few links on some ways to grow instead of drill for oil.

As always, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.
