Algae: The Future of Fuel is a half-hour documentary about the global search to develop renewable energy from an unlikely source: algae. The film explores the ground-breaking research being done by the National Research Council in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Perhaps algae fuel is not such a far-fetched idea â€“ itâ€™s the same as the crude oil we already use today â€“ it just hasnâ€™t been aged for a few million years.
This documentary is about looking for a viable alternative to conventional oil. Is there an inexhaustible supply that could be produced anywhere in the world? Could burning actually be a part of the solution to global warming? Production of this unlikely green fuel source could put Atlantic Canada in the renewable energy big leagues.
