Researchers say Yellow Light Increases Lipid Production by Algae

July 25th, 2014 | No Comments | Posted in Biofuel, Energy, Research

Researchers at the University of Toronto, Canada have discovered that yellow light can be used to produce more lipids from algae. One of the major problems concerned with the biofuel collected from algae is its lower energy density. Researchers at this university used a microfluidic device which could screen for certain conditions for algae to produce more lipids and found that yellow light can do magic. According to them, culturing algae under yellow light cause some sort of stress in algae that is responsible for the excess production of lipids. The wavelength of light is important for algae production. Scientists believe that their microfluidic device may help other research groups, those working to develop biofuels.

Another Research group from Texas A&M was looking to the algae growth and biomass accumulation at different intensities of light.

The group is currently working on the mechanisms to create four- fold increase in lipid production by algae by the use of alternating blue light.

Isn’t it elating to know that the researchers are making multiple efforts to develop a sustainable and a greener remedy for growing demand in the field of fuel energy?
