Study: algae biofuels not the easy, green biofuel answer - yet
While this post may indicate some disappointment for people living in the West, it holds tremendous promise for those who live in countries like India - feeding algae with sewage makes them grow in a very efficient way. Take the fecal matter from over a billion Indians, cycle it into motor fuel and the country could cut down on the huge amounts of money that it sends to the Middle East. Yes, the technology is available, the money is available if someone can persuade the authorities in India to work on a project to convert sewage into fuel, and there is a lot of employment to be generated from the new plants that would result from this effort.
Over to the GoI - and I must put my skeptic suit on, even as I wait to be proven wrong in my skepticism.
