Fabric Cost: Optimal YieldYields of different biofuels: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6oekxl0JAs&feature=player_embedded J. Trent, NASA
Algae has potential to produce 5000 gallons of biofuel per acre per year, according to NASA scientists. A barrel of oil is 42 gallons, so an acre could optimally yield about 120 barrels per year. There are 43,450 square feet per acre,…

Potential of Macroalgae as a Biofuel FeedstockMacroalgae or seaweeds represent a diverse group of eukaryotic, photosynthetic marine organisms. Unlike microalgae, which are unicellular, the macroalgal species are multicellular and possess plant-like characteristics.
These photosynthetic organisms abundant in oceans and coastal waters. They are a potent biofuel feedstock, they have high amounts of carbohydrates (that can be…

Challenges in Algae Fuel CommercialisationAlgae provide much higher yields of biomass and fuels than comparable energy crops. Deriving energy from algae presents a number of challenges in the upstream processes such as strain selection as well as the downstream processes such as extraction of oil and processing of the biomass.
As of now, there…

Tidal PumpingMy view is that a key constraint to scaling up algae production is the energy cost of pumping. A pumping method with close to zero operating costs would help to make algae biofuel commercially competitive. This idea is at the heart of my proposal for large scale ocean based algae…

Developments in Closed Reactors for Algae CultivationCultivation of microalgae using natural and man-made open-ponds though technologically simple is not as promising as the Photobioreactors (PBR) owing to low productivities and problems with contamination.
In the photobioreactors (PBR) the environment is better controlled than in open ponds because these systems are closed and everything that the algae…

High value end products from algaeAlgae, specially microalgae can be used for the production of a range of non-fuel products. Most of the algae fuel companies are now focusing on high-end non-fuel products from algae to begin with and are planning to gradually shift to fuel production as more breakthroughs occur in the algae fuel…

thinking aloudLooking at India and its unending congestion- why havent people ventured into sharing transportation system to commute in cities esp. during office hours ..as a matter of fact, I know that this system has been running quite effectively in other world cities. A well-thought sharing system could save us a…

The Algae Fuel ChallengeAlgae as a biofuel feedstock bring forth a multitude of benefits:
(a) Order of magnitude higher yields
(b) Ability to grow in a variety of environments
(c) Potential for each part of biomass to yield value
Deriving fuel from algae is however still at research stage, and there are some…
