Virginia’s First Algae Farm Near Spring Grove an Experiment in Biofuel

September 26th, 2008 | 1 Comment | Posted in Algae-Energy-Companies, Algae-Fuel-Research

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

Virginia’s first algae farm located outside of Spring Grove includes a series of tanks that hold algae and lined “raceways” where the algae grows.

There was much ado near Spring Grove recently over the opening of an experimental farm – the first of its kind in Virginia – that grows a single, if slimy, commodity: algae.

Gov. Timothy M. Kaine came and spoke, as did a state senator and state delegate who represent this rural area between Norfolk and Richmond, just east of Hopewell. Navy officers attended a VIP ceremony to christen the farm, as did dozens of environmentalists, scientists and curious businesses executives.

Algal Farms Inc. is a private-public venture that seeks to build on research at Old Dominion University into alternative energy. Its purpose: determine if algae can be grown, harvested and converted into biodiesel fuel, as well as a byproduct fertilizer, in sufficient amounts to make a decent profit.
