Plankton to Provide Clean Oil – Spanish Research Study

August 6th, 2006 | No Comments | Posted in Algae-Biodiesel, Algae-Photobioreactor

Got this link suggestion from Michael Cohen, a faculty at Sonoma State University, California – thanks!

Plankton to Provide Clean Oil – see full news item

“A system for producing energy from marine algae, to replace fossil fuels and reduce pollution, has been developed by Spanish researchers and will be operational in late 2007…

…Biofuel Systems SL (BFS), the Spanish company developing the project, told IPS that “the system will produce massive amounts of biopetroleum from phytoplankton, in a limited space and at a very moderate cost.”

The executive explained that the photo-bioreactor to be produced by his company is not the same thing as algae-based biodiesel projects from other countries…

BFS, with the support of the University of Alicante, “has designed a totally new system for producing biopetroleum — not biodiesel — by means of an energy converter,” he explained.

–end of article…

I would request you to read the article in full from the link provided above, it provides some useful data

What is really intriguing is the claim that they can produce bio-petroleum from these phytoplanktons…Guess I need to do some more reading in this regard, since from what I have learnt, the triglyceride present in the feedstock such as fixed oils and algae oil can be converted into biodiesel though transesterification, I am not aware of a process that converts these oils into petroleum/gasoline. I’d be grateful if anyone of you could provide some details in this regard

Have a nice day

Btw, have you checked out the new open source project for biodiesel from Algae we have kicked off at Algae? Admittedly, this is just a thought and an experiment at this stage, but we have been getting quite a few enthusiastic responses, do check out algOS – Oil from Algae Open Source @ Oilgae
