Jon assessed algae for potential biodiesel production. Two species were examined, Pediastrum sp. which has never been assessed for the amount of oil it could produce and Chlamydomonas sp., which has a known content of oil for biodiesel. The study found that Pediastrum sp. produced about 5% oil per dry mass compared to 24%. for Chlamydomonas sp. Hayes concludes that Pediastrum sp. would not be efficient for biodiesel production.
