Record-breaking algae-powered motorcycle on view at Algae Biomass Summit

September 24, 2012 |

In Colorado, the Algae Biomass Summit opens today, and many attendees are excited to see the record-breaking motorcycle powered by algae-based biofuel that will be shown by Kristian Gustavson of Below the Surface, a water-issue awareness nonprofit. The group’s Driving Innovation Team drives a unique turbo-charged, 800cc diesel powered track motorcycle manufactured in Holland.

The motorcycle is powered with one of two biofuel solutions.  These include a 50/50 blend of biodiesel derived from algae and cooking oil waste, developed by the University of California at San Diego (UCSD), and a 100% algae-derived Green Crude diesel fuel provided by Sapphire Energy.
