Fill your car with pond scum in 2010
December 12, 2006, CNET News.com

Excerpts from this article:

1. The company LiveFuels is partnering with Sandia National Labs to devise a version of car fuel out of algae…The science comes from Sandia; LiveFuels handles the business side of things. The company has already trademarked the name Supercrude
2. According to LiveFuels, it can potentially get 10,000 gallons of useable hydrocarbons for an acre-size pond a year. The hydrocarbons will be transformed into diesel or petroleum.
3. The ponds will be fed by farm waste water.
4. The North Sea Deposit, among others, was created by prehistoric algal blooms, according to some scientists.
5. A lot of research lies ahead in figuring out how to optimize the algae for petrol production, because the lab strains tend to be out-competed in the real world.
6. As an aside, there is a possibility that we can harness microbes to do the chemical transformation and fermentation. The company Dyadic International has found a prolific fungus that they believe can transform waste products from farms into fuel, while the company Microgy has devised a digester that turns a mix of cow manure and microbes into natural gas. Other microbe-related start-ups include Mascoma, Ceres, Cambrios, Fundamental Applied Biology (FAB) and Synthetic Genomics.
