Independence Bio-Products of Dublin, Ohio, has produced algae oil, which has been converted to jet fuel and then successfully tested by the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright Patterson AFB. The algae was grown in open ponds in Ohio and harvested with IBP’s proprietary system. This milestone is part of a federally funded project to examine algae-to-fuel processing strategies.
