Need algal oil

Postby algaeproject » Sun Dec 14, 2008 4:22 am

I would like to purchase about a cup of algae oil. Anyone have some that I can buy, or would be willing to donate for a 7th grade science project? Please help us!
Thanks

Why bother purchasing if all you need is a cuppa oil?

Just grow some microalgae in a fish tank or a pond, collect it, dry it and squeeze out the oil. As simple as that....as you require only a small amount of oil, my guess any microalgae should do...
