One interesting possibility for producing fuel from algae is the direct pyrolysis of microalgae. Wu et al. (1999) report the direct pyrolysis of marine nanoplankton as a source of methane and oils with Emiliania huxleyi, a widely distributed coccolithophorid species in world oceans with the authors suggesting this as one of the most promising candidates for the production of biofuel.
Does anyone have any more inputs on this?
