  • Algal biofuels from wastewater treatment high rate algal ponds

    This paper examines the potential of algae biofuel production in conjunction with wastewater treatment. Current technology for algal wastewater treatment uses facultative ponds, however, these ponds have low productivity (∼10 tonnes/ha.y), are not amenable to cultivating single algal species, require chemical flocculation or other expensive processes for algal harvest, and do not provide ...

  • Algal production in wastewater treatment high rate algal ponds for potential biofuel use

    Wastewater treatment High Rate Algal Ponds with CO2 addition could provide cost-effective and efficient tertiary-level wastewater treatment with the co-benefit of algal biomass production for biofuel use. Wastewater grown algal biomass can have a lipid content of 10–30% of dry weight, which could be used to make biodiesel. This research investigated algal biomass and total lipid production by two ...

  • Workshop Report: Developing a Research Agenda for the Energy-Water Nexus

    The energy-water nexus has attracted public scrutiny because of the concerns about their interdependence and the possibility for cascading vulnerabilities from one system to the other. There are trends toward more water intensive energy, (such as biofuels, unconventional oil and gas production, and regulations driving more water consumption for thermoelectric power production) and more energy ...

  • International context and lessons for B.C.

    Paul McFarlane presented a paper co-authored by W.E. Mabee and J.N. Saddler. The International Energy Agency (IEA) was founded in 1974 in response to energy concerns. IEA is a forum for energy cooperation among 26 member countries within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). It interacts with non-OECD countries to enhance supply security, give advice on energy policy ...

  • Simulating the hydrologic response of a semiarid watershed to switchgrass cultivation

    The conversion of land from existing uses to biofuel cultivation is expected to increase given concerns about the sustainability of fossil fuel supplies. Nonetheless, research into the environmental impacts of biofuel crops, primarily the hydrological impacts of their cultivation, is in its infancy. To investigate such issues, the response of a 1,649 km2 semiarid basin to the incremental ...

  • Jatropha Curcas and Its Potential Applications; A Compilation Paper on Plantation and Applications of Jatropha Curcas

    Biofuel has been regarded as potential alternative fuel for partial substitution of petro-diesel. Jatropha curcas, which is one of the sources of bio-diesel, are easily available in tropical and sub-tropical areas. A number of plantation practices and engine test runs have been conducted across the world, which has been successful to demonstrate it as alternative source of fuel. The article here ...


  • Estimation of the water footprint of sugarcane in Mexico: is ethanol production an environmentally feasible fuel option?

    Energy policies are taken throughout the world to reduce fossil fuel emissions from transportation sources. Agriculturally based biofuels are currently the only alternatives to liquid fossil fuels. However, as biofuel production spreads, so too do its cascading impacts on environment and food security. This paper analyzes the impact of Mexican ethanol-sugarcane policy on water resources. The ...
