  • Algae: the new oil

    I. Introduction A) Framing the Problem as an OpportunityRFS goals can not be met with soy and corn alone- there is not enough corn and soy in the US to meet RFS goals- current feedstocks soy, palm, canola, etc are in short supply and are too expensive for biodiesel producers- the biofuels industry is at a critical point where alternatives such as algae are neededB) The ...

  • 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 ...

  • Researchers identify six oil-producing algae

    A team of researchers from the faculty of science and technology of the University of Coimbra (FCTUC) is attempting to produce biodiesel on a commercial scale from microscopic algae. They have identified six micro-algae which have massive potential for biodiesel production. The initial results of the research, which started in March 2008, are very encouraging. One strain is already being tested ...

  • 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, ...

  • Is Algae the new green?

    Algae, one of the most abundant and easily cultured organisms on the planet, has a versatile range of uses in the environmental sector. From treating wastewater to providing bio-fuels, this simple organism may be the answer to several environmental problems. Algae are a large and diverse group of simple photosynthetic organisms with approximately 65,000 different species around the ...

  • Energy researchers create crude oil from algae in 30 minutes

    Energy research carried out by workers at the US Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has resulted in the creation of crude oil from algae in a process that takes just 30 minutes. The method is a continuous chemical process that produces crude oil when a form of harvested algae is poured in - and the algae takes the form of a green paste that has the consistency of ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
