  • 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 ...

  • Biofuel from human urine

    Micro-algae can grow on undiluted human urine. This offers opportunities for new water purification methods and perhaps even for converting urine into usable chemical substances and biofuels. Researcher Kanjana Tuantet published the results of tests on algae that had been grown on undiluted urine in the September edition of the scientific Journal of Applied Phycology. Her study showed that the ...

  • Food as fuel - are biofuels to blame?

    The United Nations has accused the US and the European Union of having taken the "criminal path" by contributing to an explosive rise in global food prices through using food crops to produce biofuels. This comes in the wake of skyrocketing prices and plummeting food supplies in the developing world. But many questions remain as to whether biofuels are the root cause of the current world food ...

  • When biofuels and biosecurity meet

    “New agricultural non-food crops, especially those developed to meet the growing demand for biofuels and other renewable industrial needs in the 21st Century, will have to meet triple bottom line – people, planet, profit – criteria,” says CSIRO Entomology’s Dr Andy Sheppard. “Sustainable management of pests in new crops and minimisation of any invasive threats these crops pose to the environment ...

  • 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, ...

  • Grass Is Greener For Biofuels Future

    A genetically-engineered bacterium developed by scientists in the US can produce ethanol biofuel from coarse, wild-growing switchgrass, rather than using vital food crops such as maize. Scientists in the US claim they have developed a simple, one-step process that turns plant tissue into biofuel. A genetically-engineered bacterium can convert switchgrass into ethanol directly, without any ...

  • Wastepaper could be biofuel source

    Converting waste such as paper and cardboard into biofuel is a neglected option that could provide clean energy, cut the amount of municipal waste and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, researchers say. Around 83 billion litres of ethanol could be produced from waste paper, according to their model. This could replace five per cent of the world's global petrol demand. Moreover, ethanol produced ...

  • 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 ...

  • Roundtable reveals international biofuel standard

    Biofuels offer the promise of a low-carbon fuel that could power vehicles and stimulate the world's rural economies. Yet biofuels are also among the most vilified of environmental technologies. Ethanol refineries are not always clean. The labor on biofuel farms is not always fair. The diversion of feedstocks from food to fuel may be driving up global commodity prices. And the forests, fields, and ...

  • Models help assess biofuels` sustainability

    Many agricultural products can be converted into feedstocks for alternative fuel. Now analysis from the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) suggests that they can be used this way without reducing the nation's food supply, soil production capacity or environmental quality. ARS scientists are collaborating with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Economic Research Service (ERS), the U.S. ...
