Nanobiotechnology-manipulated light particles to accelerate algae growth 45

Sureshkumar and Wani have discovered a method to make , which can be used in the production of biofuels, grow faster by manipulating through the use of . By creating accelerated photosynthesis, algae will grow faster with minimal change in the ecological resources required. This method is highlighted in the August 2010 issue of Nature Magazine.

The SU team has developed a new bioreactor that can enhance algae growth. They accomplished this by utilizing nanoparticles that selectively scatter blue light, promoting algae metabolism. When the optimal combination of light and confined nanoparticle suspension configuration was used, the team was able to achieve growth enhancement of an algae sample of greater than 30 percent as compared to a control.

    Great idea, if d cost of production is less using nanoparticles. I doubt weather this method is adaptable for large bioreactors.

    Free open-source characteristics, Hulk reduce the access threshold of smartphones are Android Samsung, HTC, Huawei, millet and other hardware manufacturers God, as limited by the high cost of developing the operating system, the hardware supplier on Android can be said homage to, but with the brand enjoys popular support, hardware manufacturers ax to grind have but do not want to insert the term "Google parasite, then, try to almost all employees to develop a proprietary interface, http://www.shoechristianlouboutinoutlet.org/ which is why the same Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy and HTC Senese completely different user experience. http://www.shoesjimmychoowebshop.net/ Would the hardware supplier of a large number of private code now looks to control completely useless, 9.19kuangypl Android 2.3 version is still the most sought after and takes about 40% of the shares Android4.0 release, http://www.shoechristianlouboutinonsale.com/ but far no one cares, but not enough to lead the collaboration have enough enthusiasm. http://www.bigsalejimmychoo.net/ Together with the Android system, http://www.shoeschristianlouboutinonsale.com/ a new version release, hardware almost all employees in the new product development cycle, http://www.jimmychoosau.net/ perhaps Android can never be the same be as smooth upgrade IOS longer hardware provider of strategic control by private code springen.Zweitens Google is not a large software company, Android success, more thanks to the innovation of the business model, instead. performance of the system itself
