  • Algae biofuels

    Biofuel from algae could be a meaningful part of the solution in the future because of its potential as an economically viable, low emissions transportation fuel. As part of the program, ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company is teaming up with Synthetic Genomics (SGI) to develop, test, and produce biofuels from photosynthetic algae. Algae produce bio-oil that can be processed into biofuels ...

  • Algae: Biofuel of the future?

    In the world of alternative fuels, there may be nothing greener than pond scum. Algae are tiny biological factories that use photosynthesis to transform carbon dioxide and sunlight into energy so efficiently that they can double their weight several times a day. As part of the photosynthesis process algae produce oil and can generate 15 times more oil per acre than other plants used for biofuels, ...

  • Algae Biofuels Production Technologies Worldwide

    Involvement in the algae biofuels industry shot up by companies 550% between 2005 and 2007, driven by environmental concerns and high crude oil prices. However, oil prices have since declined, and the recent global financial crisis stymied many industries. Currently there seems to be continued interest in algae biofuels, but the industry is also plagued by excessive hype… So what is the ...


  • NRC drives strategy to commercialize biofuel from algae

    Canada"s National Research Council is collaborating with a number of industrial partners to commercialize technologies for algae cultivation, biomass handling, oil extraction and ultimately, fuel production. NRC is committing approximately $5M in funding through the National Bioproducts Program and the ...

  • Algae PhotoBioreactor`s convert Carbon to Biofuels

    Engineering designers from fishace technologies in Perth, Western Australia have developed a modular APB (Algae Photo Bioreactor) that can be placed at mine sites and power plant facilities to capture up to 85% of greenhouse gas emissions, blamed for global warming. APB’s captured gases include contaminants such as carbon dioxide and nitrous oxides. CO2 produced from the combustion of carbon ...

  • Tiny algae loom large in biofuel pilot projects

    The production of biofuels from algae gained new prominence this summer when ExxonMobil announced that it will invest up to $600 million in the technology. ExxonMobil and Synthetic Genomics Inc. (SGI) formed a research and development alliance in July to explore the production of biofuels from photosynthetic algae. Photosynthetic algae—such as single-celled 'microalgae' and blue-green algae—are ...

  • Hiden’s HPR-40 System and Biofuels From Algae

    Algae-based biofuels such as biodiesel or bioethanol, have significant advantages over crop-based biofuels. Algae grow at a significantly faster rate than more complex plants, they have far greater yield per unit area and they can be grown in compact, closed systems. One further advantage is the short lifespan and hence a faster cycle of testing and research into suitable biofuel candidates. It ...

  • Shell and HR Biopetroleum build facility to grow algae for biofuel

    Royal Dutch Shell plc and HR Biopetroleum have announced the construction of a pilot facility in Hawaii to grow marine algae and produce vegetable oil for conversion into biofuel.  The announcement is a further step in Shell’s ongoing effort to develop a new generation of biofuels using sustainable, non-food raw materials.  Algae hold great promise because they grow very rapidly, are ...


  • Fiscal Cliff Bill Makes Algae Eligible for Biofuel Producer Credit

    As part of the bi-partisan "Fiscal Cliff" legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate on January 1, 2013, algae-derived fuels are, for the first time ever, a "qualified feedstock" under section 40 of the United States Code meaning that producers of algal fuel are eligible for a $1.01 per gallon tax credit. "Achieving tax parity with other biofuels has been a key ...
