This is not a simple, afternoon venture, but a serious, long-term commitment. Latest / Store: Directory:Emergency Preparedness / Directory:Alternative Fuels > Directory:Biofuels > Directory:Algae > Directory:Biodiesel from Algae Oil > New book explains how to build Open Ponds for growing algae for biodiesel - David Sieg has completed yet another e-book in his excellent series on making your own biodiesel from algae and other biomass. This book focuses on the methods of cultivating algae in open ponds, both small-scale for home applications, or large-scale for commercial applications. (PESN Sept. 3, 2010)
Big Oil Turns to Algae - ExxonMobil is investing $300 million in Synthetic Genomics to develop algae biofuel. The push is to take advantage of algae's ability to efficiently transform sunlight into lipids that can be relatively easily converted into diesel, gasoline, and possibly even advanced hydrocarbons used to manufacture plastics, chemicals, and other products.

Only 10 business plans will be picked to present to the National Algae Association next quarterly meeting on July 17, 2008 in Texas. (National Algae Association July 2, 2008)
Arizona Project Uses Algae to Turn Coal Pollution Into Biofuel - Arizona Public Service has secured $70.5 million in stimulus funds to expand an innovative project that turns carbon dioxide emissions from a coal power plant into biofuel using algae. While part of the funds will be used to scale up the algae processing portion, some of the funds will also be used to investigate the potential benefits of turning the coal into a gas prior to burning it for power.
