Kingsburgh Sewage Project in Durban Aims at Fuel from Algae

May 5th, 2008 | 3 Comments | Posted in Algae-Harvesting

You are at: Oilgae Blog. See the complete list of Oilgae Blog articles.

Durban is helping to develop a new liquid fuel technology which involves harvesting tiny plants and nutrients from local sewage works.

Unlike other plant-based biofuels which require vast tracts of fertile farmland or the diversion of food crops into fuel tanks, the Durban experiment involves growing algae in semi-purified sewage water and then converting these microscopic plant organisms into a liquid fuel that can power diesel cars and trucks.

Engineers are about to start converting part of the Kingsburgh sewage treatment works into a biodiesel farming experiment as part of a two-year scientific pilot project run by the Durban University of Technology’s school of water and wastewater technology.

    Hey! Thanks for all the great info. I was browsing through a bunch of green websites and blogs and I came across yours and found it very interesting. There are a bunch of others I like too, like the daily green, ecorazzi and earthlab.com. I especially like EarthLab.com’s carbon calculator (http://www.earthlab.com/signupprofile/). I find it really easy to use (it doesn’t make me feel guilty after I take it). Are there any others you would recommend? Can you drop me a link to your favorites (let me know if they are the same as mine).

    Very interesting.

    If the economics don't work, sustainable efforts won't either.
    Check http://LivePaths.com, a blog about innovative entrepreneurs that make money selling recycled items, provide green services or help us reduce our dependency on non renewable resources. These include some very cool Green online ventures, great new technologies, startups and investments opportunities.
