New Uses for Squalene…as Jet Fuel!

 We’ve touted the fantastic health benefits of squalene on this blog for ages! But now, researchers in Japan are find new and incredible ways of using the squalene found in plants and algae to make gas and jet fuel!!!!

A direct quote from an article that can be found HERE , says; “The project attempts to make use of oil-producing algae in wastewater treatment as some algae produce more oil than terrestrial plants, so they are a promising source of oil.”

This could be a way to minimise the impact that oil drilling has on the environment. It can also assist in finding alternative sources of energy.

Squalene benefits really just keep giving and giving!
