Converting Algae to Fuel in Arkansas

Researchers at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville are experimenting with ways to turn algae into fuel. The researchers are currently conducting a small-scale experiment in Springdale and are proposing a larger-scale experiment with OMI, a wastewater treatment plant in Fayetteville.

The algae would "eat" left-over phosphorus in the water, then be harvested every five days, and oil would be squeezed from them to produce fuel. Read the full story at KFSM News.
