U.S. will support Research on Algae-based Biofuels


The American Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) department will support research and development into algae-based biofuels.

The funding will support research projects that aim to boost the productivity of algae cultivation systems and develop effective, energy-efficient, and low-cost algae harvest and processing technologies, Bioenergy Site reported.

These research projects will help to improve the yield from algae.

Increasing the yields can help lower the cost of biofuels.
