Experience NASA's Green Lab Research Facility
04.07.12
 
Biofuels are a renewable energy source, and NASA Glenn Research Center has initiated a program to study two principal sources of biofuels: sea water algae and arid land halophytes.

Completed in November 2009, the Green Lab Research Facility is experimenting with salt-water algae and halophytes as bio-fuels of the future.

NASA Glenn Research Center's Green Lab Research Facility. With an indoor laboratory and an outdoor greenhouse facility NASA researchers can study basic biology of renewable energy sources which could eventually be customized to different fuel needs.
