The Xtreme, algae-eating fungus that may save the world

| January 26, 2012

In Montana, a researcher at Montana State University has discovered a fungus from an extreme zone in Yellowstone, fond of eating algae, that could become a future participant in biofuel production. When the fungus is dried out, it oozed an oil of high percentage lipids contained a ratio of oleic and steric acids that’s nearly ideal for biofuels. Already Cargill and BP are showing interest in the fungus.
