We all know how Algae Biofuel brings a whole new world of options to the table but now it seems that another benefit has been proven. Bioresource Technology has proven through a study that Algae Biofuel emits 50% less carbon compared to petroleum fuels, giving us another angle on how Algae biofuel can deliver alternative in the world of fuel needs.
The study thus shows how algae biofuel comes close to matching the Energy Return on Investment (EROI) of fossil fuels. The study which was entitled Pilot-scale data, provide enhanced estimates of the life cycle energy and emissions profile of algae biofuels produced via hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL).
Researchers examined field data from Sapphire Energy facilities in Las Cruces and Columbus, New Mexico.
