Tweet In Spain, the Institute for Plastic Technology in Valencia is running an EU program looking into various materials that can be produced from algae to create adhesives, paints and dyes using a technology developed by Alicante-based Biofuel Systems. The 42-month research program includes 13 different companies. The first stage of the project will be […]
Tweet In California, researchers from Bio Architecture Lab published in the journal Nature an alginate monomer transporter they discovered that will help to significantly boost the efficiency of cellulosic ethanol production from brown macroalgaes. Using fermentation, the researchers were able to achieve 83% theoretical yield from the sugars.
Tweet Qantas, Shell, AISAF, SkyNRG, Solena and others collaborate on on an illuminating supply chain analysis of sustainable aviation fuels. Which one is technically ready, but feedstock-starved? Which one has affordable feedstock but the technology is not proven in prime time? Read on. There’s been so much uproar in road transport with revisions to EU […]
Tweet In California, OriginOil announced that academic testing has verified its new Algae Screen™ growth optimizer effectively controls bacteria and microscopic predators in commercial algae production, helping to promote high rates of cultivation of the most valuable species. “Initial test results saw a dramatic drop in contaminant load while the culture still maintained target cell […]
