First algae being grown in Mookgopong bioreactor

Cremer Media’s Engineering News Online, Dec 2006


1. With the imminent release of South Africa’s long-awaited national biofuels strategy, biodiesel producer De Beers Fuel has showcased a new technology that could significantly increase the country’s capacity to produce biofuels.
2. Technology introduced by the company in partnership with GreenFuel Technologies and Green Star Products of the US, in Mookgopong in Limpopo, involves the growing of algae as feedstock for biofuels production. Biodiesel, bioethanol and biogas can be produced from the algae.
3. The company’s ambitious expansion plans involve the production of sufficient feedstock to produce between 16-billion and 24-billion litres of biodiesel in the next five years.
4. South Africa currently uses about 8,1-billion litres of diesel a year
5. Bioreactors can be installed at power and industrial plants to recycle CO2 emissions
6. Using GreenFuel Technology’s algae bioreactor system connected to APS’s 1 040-MW Redhawk power plant in Arlington, Arizona, GreenFuel was able to create a carbon-rich algal biomass.
7. De Beers Fuel is part of the Global Renewable Energy Efficiency Network (Green), which is headquartered in Johannesburg. Green-Fuels Technologies has signed an agreement with Green to license its proprietary technology to the company.
8. Plans are under way for Green to deploy a fuel assessment unit at the Kelvin power station, in Johannesburg.
7. The national South African biofuels strategy will likely entail a mandatory 5% blending ratio for biodiesel (known as B5) and a 10% mandatory blending ratio for bio-ethanol into petrol, known as E10.

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

About Oilgae – Oilgae – 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
