South Korea Researchers Breaks Algae into Simple Sugars using Enzymes.

January 24th, 2009 | No Comments | Posted in Algae-Fuel-Research

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

Now, researchers in South Korea have managed to devise a method of obtaining ethanol that is both very safe and highly productive.The main secret behind their revolutionary technique is a certain enzyme, which has the capacity of breaking down the algae into simple sugars. As we all know, that’s the stuff ethanol is made off, and a simple fermentation process is all that is required in order for that to happen.

All someone would need in order to to produce ethanol would be a very large bowl, some algae, the enzyme, as well as gas-trapping equipment and pressurization devices, so as to bottle the biofuel.

Furthermore, because algae grow in their natural habitat, underwater, they develop very fast, and can be harvested approximately 5-6 times per year, which would lead to a considerably increased efficiency, as opposed to waiting for potatoes to grow in rough soil, once a year. Another great advantage that algae have is the fact that they do not contain lignin, like the wood does, which means that they don’t have to be treated with chemicals before being processed.
