REG’s technology can produce biodiesel from algae

August 23rd, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in Algae-Biodiesel, Algae-Energy-Companies

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

The following is the brief excerpt of an article about the Renewable Energy Group from Biodiesel Magazine (the full article can be read here)

Renewable Energy Group of Ames, Iowa, has announced it has technology capable of producing biodiesel from algae oil. The company said it is working with several groups to commercialize algae production, but it is not producing algae itself.

REG has adapted it multi-feedstock technology to refine oil from a variety of algae strains and produce biodiesel exceeding ASTM standards. The results indicate the process can be commercialized when sufficient quantities of algae oil become available. At this time, REG is working with algae companies to develop their process. “We have worked with a variety of algae companies that we think will become producers,” said Daniel Oh, chief operating officer of REG. “We can work with algae companies who are trying to define what they are trying to do from a strain selection perspective to the smartest way to scale up to a commercial scale.”

Well, there is a lot of vague assertions in the article and I’m not entirely clear what is so great about REG’s tech…but may be they will soon tell us!
