Sapphire Energy lands "game-changer" award for its partnerships

October 14, 2011 |

In California, Sapphire Energy was selected as a 2011 “Game Changer of the Year” in Clean Technology by Grow-California for its impact on California’s green industry, in the category of Public/Private Partnerships. San Diego-based Sapphire Energy entered into two notable private partnerships this year.

The company is partnering with Monsanto Company to discover genes that can be applied to agriculture, particularly in the field of yield and stress, and that can accelerate the road to producing energy from algae.  A multi-year collaboration with the Linde Group focuses on development of low-cost, scalable CO2 management systems to capture and transport the one key nutrient required in addition to sunlight for commercial algae production.
