Optimizing biofuel production from algae using carbon dioxide emissions

The combustion of fossil fuels drives the world’s energy production, but it also emits carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases. In recent years, researchers have worked to cultivate alternative, renewable energy sources, including using algae-based systems. Now, a team reports in ACS’ journalIndustrial & Engineering Chemistry Research an optimized way of producing biofuel...

Algae nutrient recycling is a triple win

Nitrogen and phosphate nutrients are among the biggest costs in cultivating algae for biofuels. Sandia molecular biologists Todd Lane and Ryan Davis have recently shown they can recycle about two-thirds of those critical nutrients, and aim to raise the recycling rate to close to 100 percent. Recycling nitrogen and phosphate has benefits that go far beyond cost. While nitrogen can be...
