Algae converted to crude oil in less than one hour

Scientists have managed to transform a small mixture of algae and water, and have remarkably turned the mixture into a kind of crude oil in less than an hour. The crude oil is suitable to be turned into burnable gases like jet fuel, gasoline or diesel.
