The Search For ‘Green Gold’ – Jan 2007

If JMU Seniors Reach Their Goal, Algae May Help Fill Your Tank, By Heather Bowser, The Daily News Record


1. A group of James Madison University seniors are experimenting with a new source of biodiesel fuel — green algae. For the last few months, the students used high-tech machinery to begin the process of converting algae into fuel.
2. They’re also trying to figure out how to feed their “little green friends” a steady diet of poultry litter.
3. Unlike algae’s landlocked biodiesel cousins — namely, veggie, corn, peanut and soybean-based fuels — saltwater algae grows and reproduces more quickly, produces lots of fuel, and can be harvested in the ocean away from food crops, the students said.
4. The goal, he says, is one day to build an algae farm in the ocean.
5. Algae is valuable because in the ocean their crop wouldn’t compete for land farmers need to grow food on.
6. The seniors will present their research at the annual College of Integrated Science and Technology Senior Symposium at the end of the academic year.
