Dr. Sayre and his team have been engaged there in some brilliant, ground-breaking work on creating biofuels from algae. This month, their work has been profiled in the prestigious international magazine, Science, alongside several other rising stars in the field of algae-based biofuels.
According to the article, new developments in the field of synthetic biology have put new interest and energy behind algae as a viable alternative fuel source. Thanks to the work of Dr. Sayre and others, you could be filling your tank with algae-based fuel sooner than you might think.
See what you think, but my take-away is that algae may truly be a renewable fuel source whose time has come.
