You can take the assistance of Oilgae Custom Research.
Algae – The Holy Grail of Biofuels
Deriving energy from algae is considered the Holy Grail of alternative energy. Algae present the best option for producing biodiesel in quantities sufficient to completely replace petroleum. Algae can yield 5,000-20,000 gallons per acre per year against traditional crops which can yield only about 50-150 gallons of biodiesel per acre per year, as more evidence comes out daily from the leaders of petroleum producing countries, the incentive for finding an alternative to petroleum rises higher and higher.
The algae energy field is still in its nascency. The pay-offs are big, and so are the challenges. Companies and entrepreneurs who enter the algae energy field today have the early bird advantage. While people around the world have heard about the energy possibilities from algae and would like to know more, few resources are available that provide detailed insights into the algae energy industry, its potential, the status of various companies in this industry, and what the future is likely to hold for this industry.Using our deep expertise in this emerging industry, Oilgae can help you get there.
Projected Share of Algae Biofuels in Total Fuel Production in 2014 ( billion gallons)
|Total oil consumption in 2014||1506.939|
|Total Projected Supply by Traditional Biofuels
Total ethanol production by 2014
Total biofuels production by 2014
|Share of traditional biofuels in total oil consumption||2.72%|
|Projected market size for traditional biofuels||$ 123 billion|
From the above table, it is clear that even by 2014, less than 3% of total fossil fuels will be replaced by biofuels from traditional sources. Even this small % represents a market size of over $100 billion.
Algae have the potential to replace a much larger percentage of fossil transportation fuel than can traditional feedstock. This implies that fuel from algae represents a market that is worth hundreds of billions of dollars.
