How can algae be used as a fuel source?
The algae is burnt which (like any other plant) releases water vapour which is used by convection currents in the air to turn a turbine which can then be used to generate electricity.
Algae fuel is any fuel made using algae. Algae are a type of simple organism, of which most are photosynthetic (they get their energy from the sun). The smallest algae are unicellular, the largest are the seaweeds that make up kelp forests. Some types of algae use sunlight to make oil, and if these algae are harvested and the oil extracted from them, the oil can be used in a variety of ways, including as…
Carbohydrate Fuel Factor: 4kcal/g Fat Fuel Factor: 9kcal/g Protein Fuel Factor: 4kcal/g Carbohydrates are the preferred source of energy and used quickly. Fat is then a backup source of energy when carbohydrate fuel availability is insufficient. Protein fuel is used when both carbohydrate and fat available fuel is inadequate; however, it is a less efficient back up source.
Algae makes up an important part of the food cycle as it is used by many creatures as a source of food. Algae is also a plant that converts CO2 onto starch and oxygen which are both very important processes. Means are presently being worked with whereby algae is used to produce bio diesels to run vehicles.
Which organisms in the Mono Lake Ecosystem is a food source for most other organisms in this system?
No food crops don't need algae fuel because algae is a type of bacteria and what does bacteria do, bacteria kills plants.that is why food crops use other types of fuel. I'm just kidding I don't know I just like to be on the internet. But if this sounds good and people actually use this to write a report or something I would be happy. :):):):):):):):):):):):)
If it is free of water and does not have algae in it, then the fuel should be fine. You can send a sample off to be tested. I would also recommend treating it with a treatment that will kill algae and also running it through a water separator filter to make sure you remove any water. Some fuel additives can emulsify the water in the fuel also, so it is carried through the fuel…
