The Life of Algae - 26 Mar 2012

This short video takes a look at the cultivation of algae from Sapphire Energy’s San Diego lab in microscopic images, to petri dishes, to flasks, and then outside in the Las Cruces, New Mexico facility and into 14', 40', 100' and half-acre ponds. This is the path that many thousands of strains have taken as Sapphire Energy refines its library of commercial strains that will be used in the Green Crude Farm or Integrated Algal BioRefinery (IABR) now under construction in Columbus, NM. At the Green Crude Farm, the world's first commercial demonstration scale algae-to-energy facility, algae will be cultivated in even larger ponds, over 2 acres in size.
