Algae Can Be The New Oil

OriginOil’s breakthrough technology, based on algae, is targeted at fundamentally changing the world’s source of oil without disrupting the environment or food supplies.
Ubiquitous and easy to grow, algae has long been a promising biomass-to-fuel candidate in the eyes of researchers.  Of course, hurdles still exist to make a competitive fuel. 

Benefits of Producing Algae Oil 
  • Algae is fast growing – each oil-producing cell can mature in just hours
  • Algae is oil-rich — contains as much as 60% of its dry weight in oil
  • Algae is carbon neutral – meaning that it does not affect climate like petroleum
  • Algae is fuel efficient – as much as 1000 times more productive than corn

inspired from how the plant algae grows, one of my design for the stamp:
