Do you know that oil derived from algae is an exciting renewable fuel possibility? – see Oilgae for more.

Pond Scum Offers Promise for Biodiesel
January 11th, 2007 – Ed Yeates Reporting @ KSL, Utah’s Online news & info source

Excerpts from the news article:

1. Utah researchers are making plans to build a “refinery” for biodiesel production from algae.
2. Utah State University researchers are looking at biodiesel fuel made from pond scum.
3. According to a spokesperson for the research team for soybeans, you get about 48 gallons per acre, while for algae you get about 10-thousand gallons of oil per acre.
4. Pond scum can be grown rapidly on meshes or grids inside huge structures, fed by rooftop solar dishes. It’s not a refinery, but a bioreactor.
5. The ‘refinery” uses thousands of solar dishes that forms part of the bioreactor.
6. “For every square meter of parabolic dish, we can illuminate 10 square meters of algae surface.”
7. The project & technology have got the backing of the Utah Science and Technology Research Initiative to the tune of six million dollars in seed money.
8. USU expects pond scum biodiesel fuels could become cost competitive by 2009.
