Cornell researchers say marine microalgae key to future food and fuel

Cornell researchers say marine microalgae key to future food and fuel

December 27, 2016 |

In New York state, researchers at Cornell University say large-scale industrial cultivation of marine microalgae, or ICMM, could help produce fuel for aviation and shipping along with animal feed. Previous Cornell research shows that chickens eating algae-based feed produce eggs with three times the amount of omega-3s. Researchers say to produce the amount of liquid […]

Cornell researcher discover cellular strategy to produce biofuel through microbes feeding on CO

August 1, 2016 |

In New York state, Cornell University biological engineers have deciphered the cellular strategy to make the biofuel ethanol, using an anaerobic microbe feeding on carbon monoxide. To make biofuel from inorganic, gaseous industrial rubbish, the researchers learned that the bacterium Clostridium ljungdahlii responds thermodynamically – rather than genetically – in the process of tuning favorable […]

Cornell researchers see algae byproduct as prime animal feed

Cornell researchers see algae byproduct as prime animal feed

May 27, 2014 |

In New York state, researchers from Cornell University have been testing algae, after the oil has been removed for biodiesel production, as a potential animal feed for pigs and chickens. After removing the oil, the specimens used in the research included 13.9% to 38.2% crude protein and 1.5% to 9.3% crude fat. The algae byproduct […]

USDA grants to support Cornell research on biofuel policies and crops

May 14, 2014 |

In New York, Cornell University has received two grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture to research the interactions between crops and biofuel policies worldwide, as well as their impacts on U.S. agriculture’s international competitiveness. As part of a $12 million program, researchers will examine the links between biofuel […]
