Bio-diesel: Engineered algae the way to go

News from Malaysia, KA Cheah, Feb 5, 07

Excerpts:

1. There are plans for Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) and all the independent power producers (IPPs) in Malaysia to grow engineered algae as feedstock in bio-reactors at their power stations to produce bio-diesel and also bio-ethanol.

2. The tapping of engineered algae to produce bio-diesel and bio-ethanol has the best potential of great success because algae is very oily (it has about a 50% oil composition), it is the fastest growing organism and it becomes very dense enough to be harvested three times a day.

3. The absorption of carbon dioxide (CO2) to grow algae and then produce bio-diesel has also benefited the environment in terms of reducing greenhouse gases causing global warming. This translates into green credit points for Malaysia as well. While Malaysian bio-diesel using palm-oil as feedstock is fine it could become obsolete and non-competitive when more efficient feedstock such as algae are used for mass production of biodiesel and ethanol.
