Pollution Chemistry Study in Algae Biofuels to be Funded by NSF

So let's just assume all the numbers work out and algae-based biodiesel fulfills its destiny as the most promising second-generation biofuel out there. Then what? Well, two researchers from Colorado State University intend to find out.

Anthony Marchase and Azer Yalin have received a $325,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to determine the pollutant formation chemistry of algae-derived biofuels. Marchase summed up the study by posing the questions: "What are the consequences if we were to suddenly go from zero to 20 billion gallons of algae-based biofuel per year over the next 20 years? Are there going to be any consequence that we may not have thought about?"
