INDUSTRIAL ECOSYSTEM PROJECT Recycling of waste and storage of CO2 by Biofuel creation

The production of biofuel is now focused on the agricultural sector to produce oil from rapeseed, sunflower, beet or cane sugar. The environmental balance of such agriculture in particular is far from being positive mainly due to indirect effects of these agricultural cultures. It is therefore necessary to find more satisfying ways of producing fuel in the respect of our environment. Biodiesel production from microalgae is part of the most promising green technologies. The yield per hectare of these organisms is far better than sunflower or rapeseed. The algae could become the oil of tomorrow.
