Biofuels From Algae In Wastewater

Indian scientists working on producing biofuel from algae cultured in municipal wastewater say they are enthused by the findings of a recent study conducted at the biotechnology department of Rice University, Houston. The findings of the Rice University team, published in March in Algae, show that strains of oil-rich algae were capable of removing more than 90 percent of nitrates and more than 50 percent of phosphorus from wastewater.»
