Algae from clogged waterways could serve as biofuels and fertilizer

Water-borne algal blooms from farm fertilizer runoff can destroy aquatic life and clog rivers and lakes, but scientists will report today that they are working on a way to clean up these environmental scourges and turn them into useful products. The algae could serve as a feedstock for biofuels, and the feedstock leftovers could be recycled into fertilizer. The presentation will take place at the 249th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society. —> Read More
