Novel approach for photosynthetic production of carbon neutral biofuel from green algae

Reducing carbon emissions in order to prevent climate change requires developing new technologies for sustainable and renewable biofuel production. Molecular hydrogen is regarded as one of the most promising energy carriers due to its high energy density and clean, carbon-free use. A research group from the University of Turku, Finland, has discovered an efficient way […]

HYDROGEN OUTPUT OF ALGAE BOOSTED WITH GENETIC MODIFICATION

Hydrogen might burn clean, producing only water as a by-product, but currently over 90% of the hydrogen produced in the US comes from fossil fuels. Although algae can produce hydrogen using photosynthesis, it was believed that this only occurred for a few minutes at dawn, resulting in limited amounts of the gas. However, tests by […]

Future cities could be lit by algae

US researchers have been investigating bioluminescent algae for some years, but they have never successfully mapped the whole bioluminescent system within the algae. At the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), they are conducting the first Danish research in this area, and it shows that bioluminescent organisms could one day light up the cities in a turquoise blue light. There […]
