20,000,000 gallons of algae oil / biodiesel per acre per annum 41
That is not a typo !
Nor am I kidding.
BARD, short for Biofuel Advance Research & Development.
Compare 20,000,000 gallons with the conventional claims that at best of my knowledge never went beyond 10,000 gallons per acre. Normally around 4/5000 gallons per acre.
This is what I read just now and got fully excited. Isnt this the greatest news to all the algae to oil enthusiasts, researchers, profesionals ?
"BARD has entered into an agreement with The Green Institute Inc. to construct and operate a commercial scale algae system pilot facility located in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The planned facility will produce algae biomass to be used to produce biodiesel, and other commercial products.
The pilot facility is estimated to produce 20,000,000 gallons of algae oil / biodiesel per acre per annum [emphasis added]. Initially, the pilot facility will produce 43,070 gallons of algae oil / biodiesel per annum using 6 modules of photo-bioreactors covering 84 square feet."
