Micro-algae as a source of cheap renewable energy are at the center of new research being conducted at Argentina's National Technological University

The use of algae as a source of energy is being researched in different countries across the world and is at an advanced stage in the United States.

But as research has grown so has the realization that converting algae into energy may not be as cost-effective as originally thought possible. As a result, new research and investigation has been two-pronged, both to make optimum use of algae as a source of energy and to do it cheaply.

Scientists at the National Technological University of Mar del Plata, on Argentina's Atlantic coast, said they focused on developing techniques that would be both economically viable and environmentally sustainable.
