Latest Algae bioreactor Stories
Tomorow's energy providers may be today's micro-algae, German researchers say. To explore the energy production possibilities of micro-algae, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology scientists said Thursday in a news release they are developing closed photo-bioreactors and novel cell disruption methods. Micro-algae are monocellular, plant-like organisms that aid in photosynthesis and in converting carbon dioxide into biomass, a potential source for fuels such as biodiesel, the university said.
Employees of OriginOil in Los Angeles are working to learn how algae is grown with hopes of using those methods to create an imitation oil to replace petroleum.
