The page is a list of algal fuel producers.
- Iran started investigating on producing algae from 2000. Scientific evidences shows that the south Iran is the richest area in the world for cultivating algae, because of high humidity, sunny weather, large unused area and with salty water. The first version of algae based biofuel will become available for industrial purpose at 2015.
- Biofuel Research Team (BRTeam); a multi national research team focused on various aspects of biofuel research initiated extensive research on algal genetic engineering for enhanced biodiesel production in the year 2010. They are hopeful to achieve their first genetically-engineered microalgae with enhanced lipid production features in 2015.
- In June 2008, Tel Aviv-based Seambiotic and Seattle-based Inventure Chemical announced a joint venture to use CO2 emissions-fed algae to make ethanol and biodiesel at a biofuel plant in Ashkelon, Israel.
