Sandia Seeks Stronger Algae

Tough enough? That’s what researchers at Sandia National Laboratories are trying to find out. Algal biofuel—fuel made from algae—might one day be an option at the pump, but not when approximately 30 percent of an algae crop is lost due to pond crashes. An article in BioMass Magazine describes how Sandia is seeking tougher algae [...]
