Patent promises biofuel from seaweed

A group of scientists have filed for a patent on a process that converts seaweed into biofuel, reports New Scientist. This is good news since A) Pound360 is bored with fossil fuels, B) Pound360 knows fuel-from-corn (or anything else people can eat) is a dumb idea, C) we're huge fans of any fossil fuel alternative (like algae) that doesn't require using farmland to fuel cars instead of feeding hungry people (which has sparked food riots).

Among other advantages over land-based crops, seaweed grows so fast it can be harvested six times per year.

The patent was filed by a team of South Korean scientists. That's the second
surprising breakthrough from a team of South Koreans this year.

Especially when dealing with tougher oppositions using
the tough handle order might be beneficial sometimes. As a bar can occure but can be dangerous.
Sometimes a personal injury comes up as you can not make
subs. Consequently, if the draw can be an option for the
area or you need to preserve the leading report, it is possible to inspire your formation right into a 4-4-1 or
5-3-1, regular thinking formation with and strait collections and counter attack style in order to achive your target.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
