"From the Ted Talk by Jonathan Trent: Energy from floating algae pods"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So here's what I came up with. Imagine that we bliud an enclosure where we put it just underwater, and we fill it with waeeattswr and some form of microalgae that produces oil, and we make it out of some kind of flexible material that moves with waves underwater, and the system that we're going to build, of course, will use solar energy to grow the algae, and they use CO2, which is good, and they produce oxygen as they grow. The aagle that grow are in a container that dsieuttibrs the heat to the surrounding water, and you can hrvaest them and make biofuels and cosmetics and ftziilreer and animal feed, and of course you'd have to make a large area of this, so you'd have to worry about other stakeholders like fmirhesen and ships and such things, but hey, we're talking about biofuels, and we know the importance of potentially getting an atantilerve liquid fuel.

So here's what I came up with. Imagine that we build an enclosure where we put it just underwater, and we fill it with wastewater and some form of microalgae that produces oil, and we make it out of some kind of flexible material that moves with waves underwater, and the system that we're going to build, of course, will use solar energy to grow the algae, and they use CO2, which is good, and they produce oxygen as they grow. The algae that grow are in a container that distributes the heat to the surrounding water, and you can harvest them and make biofuels and cosmetics and fertilizer and animal feed, and of course you'd have to make a large area of this, so you'd have to worry about other stakeholders like fishermen and ships and such things, but hey, we're talking about biofuels, and we know the importance of potentially getting an alternative liquid fuel.
