Climate neutral truck traffic due to algae-based fuels? TAB-Fokus

Schröter-Schlaack, C.; Revermann, C.; Grünwald, R. ORCID iD icon


Biofuels produced from algae represent an innovative approach with regard to the renewable and climatefriendly energy supply of the truck fleet which currently is predominantly powered by diesel fuel.
Algae have a significantly higher productivity than conventional energy crops and can help prevent land use conflicts with food production or nature conservation.
Research on the production of algae-based fuels is being conducted worldwide. So far, however, it has not been possible to produce algae-based fuel in an energy-efficient and economically viable way on a scale that is relevant for road haulage.
Options for improving competitiveness can be found in optimising the selection and cultivation of algae and the utilisation of algae in so-called biorefineries, where various algae-based resources and products are produced simultaneously.
