Aquatic biofuels for local development

Report frontpage

Aquatic biomass is attracting a lot of interest for the production of biofuels. Algae are regularly in the news as the promising alternative for fossil fuels, providing feedstock for biodiesel and even jet fuel. Several water plants on the other hand are known for their vigorous growth to the extent that they are notorious invasive weeds. Properly managed these too may be a promising feedstock for biofuels. These plants might be an appropriate resource for local
biogas for cooking and electrification, thus contributing to local development.
