a green solution

When I was asked to do this story about biofuels produced from algae, I thought there wasn't that much going on in this field. But I was wrong, there is a lot going on, and the algal approach, abandoned by the DoE a decade ago, is alive and kicking. The USP is that you can farm algae practically anywhere on the planet, including on desert land. And they grow fast.

Read my story in Current Biology.
