ASU - Biofuels Initiative: Slimy Green Solutions

Arizona State University scientists are developing cyanobacteria and algae as sources of environmentally friendly fuel that is efficiently produced by solar energy conversion. Unlike other biofuels, ASU’s production processes can be carried out in closed systems on barren lands, saving farmland for food production, avoiding increases in food prices and saving water resources.

ASU’s use-inspired research creates new pathways into the biological world through sustainable engineering practices – leading to real-world solutions for today’s needs.
