Algae Blooms Used for Biofuels Production Feasibility Study

Since 2006, Matter of Trust has been the coordinator of this long-term research project studying the potential benefits of collecting suffocating algae blooms and using the lipids they contain for biofuels.

We have partnered with Randall von Wedel, PhD, BioSolar Group and Stacy Jurich of Toledo, Ohio on the algae blooms in Lake Erie and other bloom areas around fisheries.
