SRI takes over DOE Aquadic Species Program Open Ponds Facility 62

?Because of the assistance funded through NMSBA, SRI is now perfectly positioned to become a national leader in algae research.? ?Joe Ortiz
Sustainable Resources, Inc. (SRI), via president Joe Ortiz, is working to employ a solar powered kinetic pump to convert brackish water into fresh water, a process also known as desalination. In 2008, Ortiz obtained a long-term lease on the former Roswell National Desalination Facility to test SRI?s pump. When Ortiz discovered the Roswell Desalination Plant had also functioned as the U.S. Department of Energy?s Aquatic Species research center, he wanted to learn more about the potential applications of algae growth for water purification and Biofuel generation. His idea was to develop the facility into a business incubator for research, development, and commercialization of those technologies, now named Sun Harvest Proving Grounds.

    Your work on solar-powered pumps in desalination plants could have potential in countries like India as well - for instance, I live in Chennai, what has a large sea shore as well as large water problems, and there a number of desalination plants already operating in Chennai. Will be good to be updated on this... OK send email to Joe@SRIglobal.oeg and I will send updated info. JOe

    @ RHTIPPENHAUER - That's really a good question...if such technologies could start benefitting disaster-struck countries such as Haiti, nothing like it!

    Does anyone know of what happened to the vertical growth program that Valcent Technology was developing? They have moved operations to England and are doing food growth with the vertical technique but the developer had some very interesting statistics about the algae growth using the technique.
