Abstract :

Energy efficiency, greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction effectiveness and cost are the major characteristics that determine the commercial production, consumption and potential subsidization of non-fossil, renewable fuels. This paper sets out a basic model by which the characteristics of algal fuel can be examined and in doing so, conclusions are reached regarding  the likelihood of algal fuel becoming a major biofuel in the immediate and near-term future and the potential subsidy entitlement of the fuel.
