An abstract of a 1967 research paper on the distribution of aliphatic hydrocarbons in algae, in bacteria and in lake sediments

ORGANIC GEOCHEMICAL STUDIES, II.*
A PRELIMINARY REPORT ON THE DISTRIBUTION OF
ALIPHA TIC HYDROCARBONS IN ALGAE, IN BACTERIA,
AND IN A RECENT LAKE SEDIMENTt

The theory that algal oozes could give rise to oil shales is not a recent one.’-3
Evidence for this theory rests on the finding that algae have less cellulose and a
correspondingly greater proportion of lipids than most plant material. In addition,
the contemporary alga Botyrococcus is present in microscopic remains in
some organic oozes.4 Since the algal ooze precursor theory rests primarily
on geological and paleobotanical evidence, we have sought to complement this
evidence by making a study of the constituents of various genera of algae at the
molecular level and comparing them with the organic constituents isolated and
identified in the algal ooze from a Florida lake.

Oilgae – Oil & Biodiesel from Algae
Oilgae Blog
algOS – Biodiesel from Algae Open Source

About Oilgae – Oilgae – Oil & Biodiesel from Algae has a focus on biodiesel production from algae while also discussing alternative energy in general. Algae present an exciting possibility as a feedstock for biodiesel, and when you realise that oil was originally formed from algae – among other related plants – you think “Hey! Why not oil again from algae!”

To facilitate exploration of oil production from algae as well as exploration of other alternative energy avenues, Oilgae provides web links, directory, and related resources for algae-based biofuels / biodiesel along with inputs on new inventions, discoveries & breakthroughs in other alternative energy domains such as solar, wind, nuclear, hydro, geothermal, hydrogen & fuel cells, gravitational, geothemal, human-powered, ocean & wave / tidal energy. We hope Oilgae proves to be useful as a research information & inputs resources, and as a source of news & info for business & trade of algal oil, algal fuels & new alternative energy products – specially with regard to new feedstock / feedstocks, production processes and uses, and market info such as price / prices, data & statistics
