El Dorado Biofuels starts algae production in New Mexico

| June 13, 2012

In New Mexico, El Dorado Biofuels is successfully producing algae in the small rural town of Jal, where it reaches 116 degrees in summer. The algae grown in Jal, which the company calls “Jalgae,” is thriving in dirty, saline water that El Dorado has pumped from a nearby oil-and-gas well.

El Dorado will sell Jalgae for biofuels, and as a feed supplement for cattle, but the company will also offer petroleum companies a new, inexpensive way to dispose of industrial water.
