My favorite is ammonia, but that's for actual algae.
It will turn the algae to much and you can hose if
If it's really moss that can be scraped off (which has
some height and a root system) then it's easier just
to scrape it off.

Well, speaking of moss/algea . . . how can one kill/remove the lichen
that grows on the driveway and the trees? It seems like each year
there is more and more of it.
Any ideas chemically prior to power washing?

Go to Home Depot and rent an electric floor stripping machine for taking
floor tiles off of concrete floors.
In an hour you'll have all the moss/algae off so that you can shovel it
into your garbage can(s).

The electric floor strippers that Home Depot rents might be different,
but any floor stripper designed to strip vinyl tiles off of concrete
floors will make short work of moss on a drive way.
If your local Home Depot doesn't rent a machine like this, phone up any
retail flooring or carpet store and ask to talk to the Installations
Manager. Ask him who sells flooring installation supplies in your area.
That store will almost certainly rent electric floor strippers like the
one above. There will be a damage depost you'll have to pay, but the
only thing that's likely to be damaged are the blades and possibly some
chipping of your asphalt driveway. That doesn't really matter since
your asphalt is probably at least 3 inches thick and you have to repave
it every 30 or 40 years anyhow.
