Indian army looks to algae

The Indian army is considering bio-fuel from alage as a way to reduce its dependency on fossil fuel. The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) - the research wing of the Indian armed forces, is experimenting with bio-fuel for its military vehicles.

"From our existing literature we have identified at least 40 species of algae from which bio-fuel could be extracted. Experiments are going on and we hope to come with some interesting finds very soon," said Sashi Bala Singh, director of the Defence Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences (DIPAS).
Research is underway to identify a fast-growing species suitable for bio-fuel.
