UC San Diego’s Algae Biofuels Program Ranked Best in Nation

The U.S. Department of Energy has ranked UC San Diego’s algae biofuels research effort the number one program in the nation for the fourth consecutive year.

The latest ranking is contained in a recently released report from the agency’s Bioenergy Technologies Office that summarized an external review of its research, development and demonstration programs. That review ranked UC San Diego’s algae program number one out of 27 others in the nation at universities and national laboratories funded by the agency.
