The search for alternative fuel sources is nothing new but this discovery by the Arizona State University may yet offer something interesting. New biofuel may soon be harvested from cyanobacteria microbes bacteria that literally oozes out of their skins.
Cyanobacteria, also known as blue green algae, photosynthesize sunlight into energy-rich fatty acid oil, ideal for biofuel production. It gets its energy from the sun, as opposed to the fuel-consuming manmade heat required by some other sources.
It doesn’t take up valuable cropland, that could otherwise be used for growing food and should be a great alternative to the familiar blue-green algae we have been hearing as of late.
