Australian researchers find freshwater algae good for aviation biofuel

In Australia, a native freshwater algae grown in northern Australia can be used to create a high-quality, renewable jet fuel, an international research team has found. The multi-disciplinary team including researchers from James Cook University, University of Sydney and Israel’s Ben Gurion University has developed a proof-of-concept process to create high quality renewable biofuel from the macroaglae, Oedogonium, ready for blending with regular gasoline, jet fuel and diesel. Results for their collaborative work have been published online in the prestigious international journal Energy & Environmental Science.
