processing algae

A friend of mine worked as a grain buyer for a corn-ethanol plant. He mentioned that they sold the corn oil collected from their fermenters. It occurred to me that it might be possible do the same thing with algae - ferment the carbohydrate portion of algae and capture the oil content.

Do you know of anyone that may have tried this approach?
