About This Project
You don't need to grow algae in the desert southwest for biofuel! We want to move our algae from the laboratory to large outdoor tanks at a fraction of the energy and cost of an equivalent setup in Arizona and New Mexico. Our soft-bodied freshwater algae naturally have an oil content as high as 50% of its dry weight, thrive in the cool Pacific northwest temperatures and help bioremediate wastewater. We need your help to make it happen!
