Such lipids can then subsequently be converted into replacements for fossil fuels, in ways similar to vegetable oils from terrestrial plants. There is currently some use of biodiesel based on algal oils, as pointed out above. There have also been proposals to convert algal biomass into methanol via synthesis gas or into bio-oil via pyrolysis (Hirano et al. 1998; Sawayama et al. 1999). Strains of the photosynthetic microalga Botryococcus braunii may contain and secrete substantial amounts of isoprenoid hydrocarbons: n-alkadienes and trienes, methylated squalenes and terpenoids (Guschina and Harwood 2006).
