Narasimhan Santhanam Hi Gayathri, the answer is Yes & No! Yes because technically you can get oil from a number of microalgae species that are rich in oil. Practically No, because oil from algae today costs almost three-five times as much as crude oil, so unlikely anyone is going to stand in a queue to buy it! Like

Gayathri Kumar Thanks. When we can expect the costs to come down? Like
