    Measurement of oil content of oil bearing algae used for biofuel production

    We assist the rapidly growing global biofuels industry through our MQC analysers, speeding up analyses by up to 250 times, and dispensing with the need for hazardous solvents and skilled operators required for traditional methods such as soxhlet extraction and chromatography. Benchtop, non-destructive single seed analysers enable seed breeders to select the highest oil bearing single seeds, accelerating the breeding of high oil bearing seeds for biofuel purposes by up to five years. Typical seeds are Jatropha and Camelina; our breadth of applications capability allows almost all seeds to be characterised. Benchtop seed analysers allow seed co-operatives and biofuel crushers/processors rapidly and accurately to measure the oil and moisture content of biofuel seeds. This enables farmers to be paid according to oil content, and crushing/oil processing to be optimised for the oil and moisture content to achieve the highest quality biofuel output.

  • Production of Biofuels from Microalgae

    Production of biofuels from certain microalgae and cyanobacteria would appear to be the most promising alternative to current methods, since its yield is very high, sustainable, uses either wastewater, brackish or seawater, does not require the use of agricultural land, does not compete with human food and the cultivation process consumes the CO2noxious gas.

    ALGAENERGY is responsibly paving the way towards making microalgal-based biofuels industrially profitable.  The R&D projects assigned to this task include work on selection and genetic engineering of different microalgae to produce substantial lipid-carriers, some of them patented, as well as the establishment of a suitable and scalable production process.
