Algae biofuel can help meet world energy demand

Algae biofuel can help meet world energy demand | Algal Biofuels | Scoop.it
At a pilot plant facility at Coyote Gulch outside Durango, Colo., microalgae is grown for biofuel production. In a recent paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Utah State University researchers reveal findings of an worldwide assessment of microalgae productivity potential. The team’s research was supported by the U.S. Department of Energy.

Algenol's Next Generation Biofuel

Algenol's Next Generation Biofuel | Algal Biofuels | Scoop.it
Algenol, an up-and-coming company that specializes in algae-based biofuels, has developed and perfected its revolutionary technology, likely securing its spot as the next generation's leader in renewable energy. In collaborating with University of Toronto scientists, CEO Paul Woods developed Algenol's patented Direct to Ethanol technology, which enables the production of the four most important fuels (ethanol, gasoline, jet, and diesel fuel) for around a mere $1.27 per gallon, according to the company's website. A combination of algae, sunlight, carbon dioxide (CO2), saltwater and non-arable land yields a whopping 8,000 total gallons of liquid fuel per acre per year - that's way more than the 420 gallons of fuel per acre per year that corn biofuel produces, Woods told Nature World News (NWN).
