H2OPE Biofuels In The News
In the past, attempts to isolate algae that can create bio-energy have not been successful. But since H2OPE Biofuels founder Scott Plummer, PhD, began this area of research, he has been able to achieve a significant percent increase in hydrogen output from algae.
He has done this through selective mutation, creating successive generations of algae that not only produce more hydrogen (as part of its natural biological process).
