San Antonio goes green by growing Algae

March 17th, 2009 | 1 Comment | Posted in Algae-Energy-Investments, Algae-Fuel-Research

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

Murray, an assistant professor of geology at the University of Texas at San Antonio, thinks the city is perfectly poised to become a research and production hotbed for literally one of the greenest fuels around, mined from the slippery marine life that thrives in the shallow ponds and warm, sunny weather that are hallmarks of this region.

Rather than punching holes into the ground to find petroleum, Murray envisions a shift to commercial production of native algae species and processing that harvest into biodiesel, which then would power the massive trucks that roar through San Antonio along the NAFTA corridor from Mexico.

Murray and his students are in the early stages of their project, which is beginning by collecting water samples and identifying the algal species that thrive in this area. There are at least 20,000 known species of algae in the world, he said.

“First we have to characterize the algae and pick the most robust strains for oil,” he said “The next step is to put them into production and harvest them as a crop.”

    All good news like this need
    to be on television twenty-four
    hours a day. It is news worthy
    and needs to be in the public
    consience as hope and moving
    forward. All this type of news
    is hidding in plain site on the
    web. I propose a "Modern Energy
    Channel" because this news is
    being missed along with nano tech,
    fuel cells and improvements to
    solar energy.
