Oilgae Guide to Algae Fuel Companies in USA

Get to Know about the companies in the Algae Fuel Industry from the Experts

Algae fuels present an exciting opportunity. There is a strong view among industry professionals that algae represent the most optimal feedstock for biofuel production in the long run. It is also widely accepted that algae alone – and no other bio-feedstock - have the ability to replace the entire global fossil fuel requirements. Such a significant opportunity has resulted in companies both large and small investing in algal energy.

Efforts into algae fuel research have accelerated in the past few years. As of June, 2010, almost a hundred companies and over a hundred universities have begun serious exploratory efforts into algae fuels worldwide. Among all countries, USA is the main hub of algae fuel companies and research efforts. In the US, there are numerous companies and research organizations doing extensive research in this field. Many companies are in pilot stage and close to commercialization.

Why are algae so exciting from a renewable energy standpoint? For a number of reasons:

  • The yields of oil and fuels from algae are much higher (10-25 times) than competing energy crops
  • Algae can grow in diverse regions, thus ensuring that there is no competition with food crops.
  • Algae are excellent bioremediation agents - they have the potential to absorb massive amounts of CO2 and can play an important role in sewage and industrial wastewater treatment.
  • Algae are the only feedstock that have the potential to completely replace world's demand of transportation fuels.
  • Algae are already being used in a wide variety of industries and applications, and many newer applications are being discovered. Such a wide range of end-uses enable companies to produce both fuels and non-fuel products from the same algae feedstock.
