Algae for Advanced Drop-In Fuels
Algae 2020 author Will Thurmond notes “algae is serving an increasing important role as an emerging
solution to create drop-in replacement fuels such as renewable diesel, renewable gasoline, and biojet fuel
for commercial aviation, government and defense markets that are compatible with existing aviation,
