Microalgae or Macroalgae?

Adapted from the Algae Fuels Community @ CleanTick – http://www.cleantick.com/users/algaesmiles/pages/potential-of-macroalgae-as-a-biofuel-feedstock Macroalgae or seaweeds represent a diverse group of eukaryotic, photosynthetic marine organisms. Unlike microalgae, which are unicellular, the macroalgal species are multicellular and possess plant-like characteristics. These photosynthetic organisms abundant in oceans and coastal waters. They are a potent biofuel feedstock, they have high amounts […]
