Professor David Brune,Clemson University uses Brine Shrimp for algae oil extraction

December 3rd, 2008 | 1 Comment | Posted in Algae Oil Extraction, Algae-Fuel-Research

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

Professor David Brune and students from Clemson University (CU) are working on extracting oils from algae to convert into biodiesel.They proposed a novel method which uses Brine Shrimp to Extract oil from algae.

Brune said, “The first step in extracting oils from algae starts with the growing of algae at a very high rate. CU uses a paddle wheel-driven system that is used to push the water around in a certain path, which ultimately, increases the aqua growth rate immensely.

Then, the brine shrimp are introduced to start harvesting the algae and easy-to-extract oils are then retrievable.

Trials completed in the designated ponds at CU have shown that brine shrimp, which feed on micro algae, can produce up to 500 gallons of biodiesel per acre per year with little environmental waste.”
