Check out this short movie from filmmaker Robert Felix on the algae research being conduced by Dr. Milt Sommerfeld and his team at Arizona State University.
The video shows a great description of how algae are cultivated for fuels and other products. It also describes some of the chemistry that give algae their magic. Algae can be used to make molecules of long carbon chains, which are exactly the kind of molecules that make fuels like gasoline and jet fuel.
See below for more of Dr. Sommerfeld’s take on how today’s algae technology will be providing a new generation with sustainable fuels, chemicals and even cookies.
