The predominant forms of renewable biofuels consist of bioethanol and biodiesel. Bioethanol is made by fermenting corn while biodiesel is derived from algae. Biobutanol has been identified as being energetically favorable compared to Bioethanol because it is more stable and closely matches the properties of oil. This report determines the feasibility of using algae as a feedstock for the ABE process to create butanol and ethanol.
