Stress protection: How blue-green algae hoard energy Under normal conditions, cyanobacteria, also termed blue-green algae, build up energy reserves that allow them to survive under stress such as long periods of darkness. They do this by means of a molecular switch in an enzyme. By removing this switch, it should be possible to use the excess energy of the bacteria for biotechnological purposes such as hydrogen production, without the bacteria suffering. This was found out by researchers at...

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....

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/cbf208/analyzing_algae_as) has announced the addition of the "Analyzing Algae as a Source of Fuel" report to their offering. Algae are a large and diverse group of simple, typically autotrophic organisms, ranging from unicellular to multicellular forms. The largest and most complex marine forms are called seaweeds. Though the prokaryotic cyanobacteria (commonly referred to as blue-green algae) were traditionally included as...

As gas prices continue to soar to record highs, motorists are crying out for an alternative that won't cramp their pocketbooks.Scientists at U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory are answering that call by working to chemically manipulate algae for production of the next generation of renewable fuels "“ hydrogen gas."We believe there is a fundamental advantage in looking at the production of hydrogen by photosynthesis as a renewable fuel," senior chemist David Tiede...
