Some researchers have already suggested that we burn grass in our cars instead of fossil fuel. But while grass seems to be everywhere, plankton is actually one of the most common types of vegetation on earth?although it's actually in the ocean. A Spanish company says it has solved the oil shortage problem by creating plankton that will substitute for oil.
A company named Bio Fuel Systems says it has not yet tried refining any plankton and turning it into oil but it is certain it can successfully do so. The company says their process "allows us to obtain biopetroleum, equivalent to that of fossil origin."
Even better news: this fuel would burn cleaner, producing fewer greenhouse gases than fossil fuels. It would also be cheaper.
Plankton fuel, along with the tiny jellyfish that live in the ocean and absorb CO2, may mean that the oceans end up saving the earth?and us.
