Algae Product Basket - Biodiesel, Ethanol, Methane & Hydrogen

Biodiesel is the most commonly discussed energy output from algae, but it is not the only one. A serious study of the energy domain and of algae points to a wide basket of energy outputs that can be theoretically derived from algae all the way from gasoline to hydrogen to LPG. The following is the list of fuels that can be obtained from algae.


    * Biodiesel
    * Ethanol
    * Hydrogen
    * Methane
    * Biomass where algae biomass is directly used for combustion
    * Other hydrocarbon fuel variants, such as JP-8 fuel, gasoline, biobutanol etc.


 In order to derive the various energy products from algae, the Algal Biomass needs to be put through different processes.
