Renewable, Algae-based Footwear Developed

Scientists at University of California have developed algae-based, renewable flip-flops that could be an environment friendly alternative to petroleum-based slippers – the go-to footwear in countries like India and China. The flip-flops, shoe soles and other polyurethane products scientists make from living algae oil are “sustainable” because the carbon to construct them was pulled from […]

Northwest Researchers Plan to Grow Seaweed for Fuel

Researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Washington are working on technology to turn seaweed into biofuel. The researchers are working on a free-floating type of seaweed cultivation, instead of the traditional anchored seaweed farm. By this technology, seaweed seedlings would be attached to a three mile-long carbon-fiber line system. That system would be attached […]

Algae-filled Living Chandelier Cleans the Air

London-based designer and engineer has designed a  living chandelier. Called the Exhale Chandelier, the design consists of custom-made glass ‘leaves’ that are populated with green algae, which absorb carbon dioxide from the air, while simultaneously providing extra oxygen for you to breathe. It’s kind of similar to an air-purifying houseplant, except that it’s integrated into a gorgeously made […]

Newly Discovered Algal Enzyme Uses Light to Convert Fats into Fuel

Scientists have successfully engineered algae that when starved for nitrogen, put most of their stored energy, into fats. These fats are chemically similar to hydrocarbons and are thus further processed into “biofuel”. However, this processing of fats into biofuel is not a straightforward process. Interestingly, researchers from France also found the solution to the problem from […]

Algae – A Natural Alternative to Commercial Sunscreen Products

An estimated 6,000-14,000 tons of sunscreen are deposited into coral reef areas of the sea every year. The chemicals we rub onto our skin might help prevent skin cancer but we’re only just beginning to understand the environmental impact of sunscreen – and the initial assessments are not looking good. But early stage research suggests that nature […]
