Fuels from Microalgae

    Research output: NRELMarketing


    The Aquatic Species Program, managed by the Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI), was created in 1979 to evaluate the potential of aquatic plants as a renewable energy source. Since 1982, research has investigated microalgae that produce lipids, oils that can be converted to a diesel fuel substitute or to gasoline.
