Report: Algae biofuel can cut CO2 emissions by up to 68 percent

Algae-derived biofuel can reduce life cycle CO2 emissions by 50 to 70 percent compared to petroleum fuels, and is approaching a similar Energy Return on Investment (EROI) as conventional petroleum according to a new peer-reviewed paper published in Bioresource Technology. The study, which is the first to analyze real-world data from an existing algae-to-energy demonstration scale farm, shows that the environmental and energy benefits of algae biofuel are at least on par, and likely better, than first generation biofuels.

Claim: Nanomaterial can help reduce CO2 emissions

University of Adelaide researchers have developed a new nanomaterial that could help reduce carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power stations.

Biofuel production worth billions to Shell

We find it interesting to watch some of the changes that big oil is making as the world demonstrates its commitment to developing renewable and clean energy sources.
