LED news? 17

Dear F.O.A. (Friends Of Algae)

What is the latest news, research, in the field of LED lighting technology as it might relate to algae production?

If we are to have a significant impact on global warming by slowing down the use of fossil fuel emissions of CO2
then algae photobioreactors need, must, operate 24/7/365.

Let's hear what you have heard about new, flashing LED lights.

    The Light Immersion Technology uses acrylic rods to bring light deeper into a pool of growing algae to maximize growth.

    The acrylic rods--called Light Immersion Technology--penetrate the surface of a pool of algae to bring light deeper into the pool. Bionavitas said the rod addresses one of the main barriers to algae as an all-purpose feedstock and boosts productivity 10 times compared to existing methods.

    The 3-year-old company, which has been funded by angel investors until now, is in the process of negotiating to raise a series A round that CEO and co-founder Michael Weaver anticipates will be tens of millions of dollars. That money will be used to build a biorefinery and a pilot plant for making biofuel from algae, he said.

    To Manohar,
    At first I thought you ment 1 watt per gallon of oil produced...WHOW! that would be great. But of coarse you mean 1 W per gallon capicity of the photobioreactor. I will have to 'push a pencil'
    a little bit before I comment on that.
    Thanks for your comment. Alan

    To Manohar,
    It looks like we will need about 2.5 led light per gallon. They each operate on .06 watts. That
    is .15 watts total. We could run 16.6 led lights
    with 1 watt. We only need 2.5 led light per gallon.

    Best Regards,
