Submission + - Reserachers pooh-pooh algea-based biofuel (scienceblog.com)

Julie188 writes: Researchers from the University of Virginia have found that current algae biofuel production methods consume more energy, have higher greenhouse gas emissions and use more water than other biofuel sources, such as switchgrass, canola and corn. The researchers suggest these problems can be overcome by situating algae production ponds behind wastewater treatment facilities to capture phosphorous and nitrogen — essential algae nutrients that otherwise need to come from petroleum. No sh*tting ... biofuel made (in part) from human waste.
