Algae for food, fertiliser and fuel

A profile of the Laboratory for Algae Research & Biotechnology (LARB) at Arizona State University’s Polytechnic Campus talks about the potential for algae for use as food, fertiliser and biofuel. Algae is being seen as a potential biofuel that does not compete with food for agricultural land. It can also be grown using agricultural wastes as a nitrogen source.

It sounds like a really interesting idea. Hopefully it won't be a cure that's worse than the disease...
