Aviation should convert to using biofuels because it will reduce usage of our limited oil supply.
There are many ways that we can make biofuels for aviation, but using algae is the most ideal. It’s easy to produce, and it has the potential to reduce greenhouse gasses from the surrounding atmosphere
Like all plants, algae is good for the environment. It reduces carbon emissions from the atmosphere and it’s easy to care for. Therefore the farms producing algae would be built by power plants to reduce the carbon from the air around the plant.
Because the US uses 20 billion gallons of aviation fuel per year, and an acre of algae produces 5 thousand gallons per year, that means we’ll need about 4 million acres of algae farms scattered around the country specifically for aviation proposes.
Overall, algae is the best solution to our oil shortage. Not only does it give us fuel for aircraft, cars, and other vehicles, it also is good for the environment. It’s very easy to make and it reduces carbon emissions from the atmosphere.
Algae might be our solution to the oil shortage and it might be the solution to carbon emissions as well.
The aviation industry is already starting to experiment with biofuels.
