A New Method of Converting Algal Oil to Transportation Fuels

Scientists from Japan have developed a new method of converting algal oil to transportation fuels. Squalene, which is produced by microalgae, could be converted to jet fuel or gasoline by this method.   The method uses ruthenium as a catalyst supported on cerium oxide. In the presence of this catalyst, squalane, obtained from squalene, reacts […]
