Could tiny green plants be the answer to our fuel crisis? Melissa Toifl, CSIRO scientist, thinks they might be! Melissa has been working on a research project to find out how algae can be turned into fuel as a renewable energy resource.

You can listen to the recording of Melissa’s session here: Introduction to Biofuels. This is her presentation on Slideshare:
