Hybrid algae, seawater, CO2 and advanced tech Posted by Richard on Tue October 19 2010 07:30:34 AM 8

Algenol Biofuels executives have spent decades developing commercial methods for producing ethanol.

Now, thanks in part to a $10 million investment from Lee County, the Fort Myers-based firm will be able to conduct more research in a new 40,000-square foot facility. The plant is scheduled to open Oct. 19.

Algenol produces ethanol directly from carbon dioxide and seawater using hybrid algae, sunlight, and a healthy dose of advanced technology. The company has been refining its methods since it was founded in 2006.
