Here’s an interesting Letter to the Editor @ MyWebPal

Algae instead of corn for bio-fuel

19 Mar 2007

“Dear editor:

Algae multiplies so quickly and produces so much oxygen per square foot that ponds with a total surface area five times the size of Colorado would be enough to start to reverse our growing CO2 problem.

Algae triples in volume every day. Corn, with one crop per year, nets approximately 81 gallons bio-diesel per acre (soy nets 40). Algae yields as high as 15,000 gallons per acre.

Enough bio-diesel to replace all petroleum transportation fuels could be grown in approximately 9.5 million acres — far less than the 450 million acres used for crop farming in the U.S., and the over 500 million acres animal grazing land.

Hydrogen is dangerous (explosive), extremely expensive, and nets zero energy — that is, it uses more energy than it creates.

Algae converts CO2 to O2; is 30-50 percent oil; and converts easily to bio-fuel.

Conservation reduces present and future production of CO2. Algae reduces existing CO2.

The government needs to quit looking at corn and begin massive and wholesale funding and grants for algae.

A new state agri-business of algae farms? Or grants for ocean farming? Algae, pond scum also a planet saver? Yes, if we take action.
