Biomass from Algae

Pros: It's mean, green and has a heck of a kick when it comes to producing energy. About 30 times more energy per acre than other biofuel sources.

Cons: Harvesting our green algae friends is quite expensive.

Valcent Products a progressive company has figured out the right recipe and is on the leading edge of algal production.

Neat website - educational and a great idea - I hope you have a lot of success with it. I'm looking forward to buying my next car after my Prius hybrid gives up the ghost. Hopefully, it's as nice-looking as the hydrogen car you have in the picture!
