dc.description.abstract <p>Biofuels utilizing algae as a feedstock processes the algae’s chloroplasts to transform the plant into oil that is nearly chemically identical to crude oil. Algae can grow using only available raw materials including sunlight, carbon dioxide and nutrients from wastewater. Algae can play a major role in the treatment/utilization of major wastewater and reduction of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. High upfront costs, outdated technology, and non-existing incentives are the main reasons algae as a feedstock is currently an unpopular choice for biofuel.</p>
