Algae Biofuel Project @ New Mexico State University (NMSU) Artesia Facility

January 9th, 2007 | 1 Comment | Posted in Algae-Biodiesel, Algae-Fuel-Research

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

Do you know that oil derived from algae is an exciting renewable fuel possibility? – see Oilgae for more.

Biofuel bonanza may lie in algae tanks
NMSU scientists in on the hunt for algae-based biodiesel at Artesia facility
By New Mexico State University, says this Jan 2007 article from LAS CRUCES SUN-NEWS

Excerpts:

1. The NMSU science center is serving as the location of research led by the Center of Excellence for Hazardous Materials Management (CEHMM), based in Carlsbad. The research is focused on developing the potential of growing algae as an oil-producing feedstock for biodiesel production.
2. The project is investigating the best ways to grow and harvest certain species of algae, which produce a much higher level of oil than more traditional crops like soybeans or canola.
3. The project hopes to grow algae on the reserves of brackish water – which, along with mild climate and abundant sunshine are available in New Mexico
4. While one tank’s water is agitated with a paddlewheel, researchers tried a system of pipes to circulate the water in a second tank. The results were less successful than with the paddlewheel, and the second tank is not growing algae anymore.
5. A densometer is used to determine the density of algae in the water.
6. The next step is to establish a larger demonstration pond at the Artesia center, about one-quarter of an acre in size. A much larger demonstration project to be started in 2008 eventually will cover about 100 acres, Lynn said.

Oilgae – Oil & Biodiesel from Algae
Oilgae Blog
algOS – Biodiesel from Algae Open Source

About OilgaeOilgae – Oil & Biodiesel from Algae has a focus on biodiesel production from algae while also discussing alternative energy in general. Algae present an exciting possibility as a feedstock for biodiesel, and when you realise that oil was originally formed from algae – among other related plants – you think “Hey! Why not oil again from algae!”

To facilitate exploration of oil production from algae as well as exploration of other alternative energy avenues, Oilgae provides web links, directory, and related resources for algae-based biofuels / biodiesel along with inputs on new inventions, discoveries & breakthroughs in other alternative energy domains such as solar, wind, nuclear, hydro, geothermal, hydrogen & fuel cells, gravitational, geothemal, human-powered, ocean & wave / tidal energy. We hope Oilgae proves to be useful as a research information & inputs resources, and as a source of news & info for business & trade of algal oil, algal fuels & new alternative energy products – specially with regard to new feedstock / feedstocks, production processes and uses, and market info such as price / prices, data & statistics
