Genifuel Tries Catalytic Gasification of Algae to Get Natural gas

July 31st, 2009 | 1 Comment | Posted in Algae-Energy-Companies, Algae-Energy-Products

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

Algae are widely investigated with biodiesel production. While numerous companies are working to break barriers associated with commercial-scale algal biodiesel production, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Genifuel Corp. have embraced algae, or aquatic biomass, for a different purpose—natural gas production. 

The companies are working to perfect a catalytic gasification process, which U.S. DOE’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) recently granted Genifuel an exclusive license for, and to develop a technique to efficiently grow and harvest aquatic biomass for use as a feedstock. 

The companies think their process, which was originally developed as a technique to clean up industrial and food processing waste as an alternative to incineration, will be more efficient than other methods of gasifying biomass. 

Now, it’s just a matter of maintaining funding while fine-tuning and scaling up the system to prove it can be commercially viable.

    I work for a company that specializes in biomass gasification, so I thought this article was interesting. I know ethanol plants are looking at gasification as a way to improve the amount of energy they recover per bushel of corn. I also just attended an algal biodiesel presentation which was talking up the biomass yield that algae provides over other biomass. I wonder if gasification might speed algal biomass to the market.
