Joule Biotechnologies Uses Engineered Organism for Fuel Production

July 29th, 2009 | No Comments | Posted in Algae-Energy-Companies

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

The company Joule Biotechnologies has developed a hybrid system that uses a solar concentrating converter that is filled with brackish water, nutrients and a “highly engineered synthetic organism,” to produce a bio-based fuel. The solar system, called a HelioCulture, concentrates sunlight onto the mixture, and the engineered photosynthetic organism (not algae) which converts sunlight and carbon dioxide into ethanol or a hydrocarbon-based fuel called a “SolarFuel.”

Bill Sims, CEO of the company says cellulosic ethanol can produce 2,000 gallons per acre per year, while Joule’s SolarFuels can produce 20,000 gallons per acre per year.

The company hopes to break ground on a pilot plant in 2010, and a commercial-scale plant in either late 2011 or early 2012. Sims says the company had been in stealth mode until now in order to protect the company’s “revolutionary” concept.
