Algae.Tec produces more oil and hydrocarbons per land mass than any other terrestrial crop, by orders of magnitude. The Algae.Tec system is capable of cultivating algae anywhere, including marginal land or industrialized locations. Current trends in higher oil prices, continuing escalation of fossil fuel consumption, and the accelerated depletion rate of petroleum reserves have led to advances in technology as a solution to global climate change. Renewable fuels have attracted further interest in algae as a potentially new source of sustainable biofuels.
