The composition of the algae oil is very very complicated. Nobody now I believe could give you the best answer.

I imagine that chemically, Algae Oil is very complex. It would contain the broken remnants of the algae cells and cell wall, mitochondria, sugars, fats, starches, proteins, amino acids, chlorophyls...

Perhaps the key to the success in Algaculture is not the raw energy potential, but in the little chemical miracles being performed in the algae cells.
