  • 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 ...


  • 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 ...


  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Monitoring of Algae Growth by TOC Measurement

    Global warming due to the excessive use of fossil fuels is becoming a problem which has prompted and accelerated the search for alternative fuels. Among the more attractive alternatives is biomass fuel, which is attracting considerable attention. Microalgae can be used for the production of oil without competing with food production, and to a greater extent than other biofuels, its productivity ...

  • NRC drives strategy to commercialize biofuel from algae

    Canada’s National Research Council is collaborating with industrial partners to commercialize technologies for algae cultivation, biomass handling, oil extraction and fuel ...

  • 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 ...

  • National Algae Association call for presentations and papers

    The National Algae Association is growing at an astronomical rate. We are the first national trade association for the algae industry in the United States, and we have doubled in size just in the last three months. We had very informative presentations from algae researchers and algae companies at our conference in July. People from 25 states, 4 countries and 8 universities registered for that ...

  • Algae could solve world`s fuel crisis

    Genetically modified blue and green algae could be the answer to the world's fuel problems. Bioengineers have already developed algae that produce ethanol, oil and even diesel -- and the only things the organisms need are sunlight, CO2 and seawater. Biochemist Dan Robertson's living gas stations have the dark-green shimmer of oak leaves and are as tiny as E. coli bacteria. Their genetic material ...

  • Algae holds promise to make aviation carbon-neutral

    Forget about revolutionary light-weight composite materials: a four-seater propeller plane is more likely to hold the key to the future of aviation. Or at least that"s the hope of European aerospace and defense giant EADS. The group, which owns Airbus, is showing off an aircraft powered by algae juice at the Farnborough Airshow this week. EADS (EURONEXT:FR:EAD) is betting that the small aircraft, ...
