  • 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 ...


  • Five Energy Department Accomplishments in Algal Biofuels

    Algae are an attractive biofuel feedstock because they grow fast, absorb carbon dioxide, and can utilize waste resources, such as municipal waste water. Algae store energy from sunlight and can then be converted to advanced hydrocarbon fuel and used as a direct replacement for petroleum fuel. However, the ...
