Can pond scum fuel our future?

HOLLAND, Mich.—Pond and lake scum might be the key to fueling our future.

Learn how algae can be transformed into a biofuel during a free lecture Wednesday, September 11. Western Michigan University chemistry professor John Miller will present “Algal biofuels: Energy, Environment and Economy” at the Michigan State University Bioeconomy Institute in Holland, starting at 3:30 p.m. 

According to Miller, algae can yield more biofuel than other plants and is much simpler to process.  Miller says the leftovers can also be used to amend soil.

Wednesday’s presentation is free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served.  For special accommodations, call (517) 432-4499.
