Wonder what is the latest timeline that is suggested by experts for algae fuel commercialization...I recently read that Synthetic Genomics suggest that it could be beyond 2025, perhaps even 2030 when we can realistically expert algal fuel to be in the market - 8 years ago

I had an interesting thought from one of our newsletter readers on harvesting: "Could a belt filter press be used to filter large amounts of algae like the the units that are used in waste water treatment plants? A small amount of polymer may be needed to coagulate the slurry." Hmmm..a combo... - 11 years ago

Nice and detailed article on macroalgae based biofuels. OK, we have covered this much earlier at Oilgae, and we even have a special report made, but this is a useful article too - Link - 11 years ago

I did a bit of digging on sugarcane yields...appears that estimates vary from 30 T / acre per year to 100 T per acre per year. That would be 75 T - 250 T per hectare per year. That's an enormous amount of biomass, actually more that what algae gives today! - 11 years ago

Oilgae will be releasing a free report on Macroalgae to Fuels...those who are interested in obtaining a free copy, please send a note to me through the private message with your name and email. Thanks! - 11 years ago

A gentleman I met at Singapore said that sugarcane gives better yield than algae - he says about 100 T of biomass per ha per year...will be good to know more about sugarcane BM yields... - 11 years ago
