Hello BEST friends and members,
While labs and researchers have had increasing successes with growing algae for biofuels, making the product available for purchase is the next step for the success of algae based fuels. Propel Fuels and Solazyme, California based algae fuel companies, ran a month long test at 4 gas stations selling B20 algae biodiesel. After the month they found that sales of the biodiesel increased by 35% at those stations compared to those not running the biodiesel, and many of the patrons went out of their way to support the more sustainable fuel. With infrastructure and technologies constantly improving, the need for more general public aimed information regarding algae biofuels is increasing. The more aware that people are of their fuel options, the more demand will rise for the product, hopefully ushering in a fresh wave of algae and sustainable energy support.
Thanks for your time and have a wonderful week,
