Joule Unlimited Receives an Patent for Genetically Engineered Cyanobacteria

September 14th, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in Algae-Strains

The Cambridge, Mass.-based start-up said that it has received a patent for an engineered form of cynobacteria, or blue-green algae, which grows in water and is capable of secreting biodiesel fuel.

The company claims that it can make diesel fuel directly using only sunlight and waste carbon dioxide in glass bioreactors for as little as $30 a barrel.

According to its patent, Joule Unlimited combines two enzymes with cyanobacteria to create an organism that can create hydrocarbons or chemicals. Other companies, such as LS9 and Amyris, also use genetically engineered microbes to make biofuels but they are designed to make sugars which can then be turned into fuels.

The company is now testing its system to make diesel and ethanol in Texas where sunlight and waste CO2 are fed into its bioreactors. The organisms grow, the fuel is harvested, and the organisms are then recirculated back into the growing solution. Its bioreactors also control heat and light to optimize growth.

Joule plans to begin pilot production of diesel at the end of 2010 and open a commercial plant in 2012. Its pilot test for ethanol production show it can be produced at a rate of 10,000 gallons per acre per year.
