What he has designed is a basic proof of concept. While I highly doubt he has a + EROI with this setup, he has an idea which possibly could be done on a larger scale, likely getting more efficient with higher volumes. Not a solution for our much more simple problem of overpopulation, but perhaps a good way to reduce our impacts, while offering us the opportunity to chat knowledgeably on the inter-webs.

This was on tomrrow's world in 1992. Using a giant coil of transparent tube they grew algae in it, dried it and then fueled a diesel (I think) engine. There was also a brief example of it being squirted through a naked flame and my did it burn! Sadly it's yet to be seen in viably large quantities, but cool tech. all the same.
