Algae madness

I have no idea why there seems to be so much algae news last week but I guess that’s good news for the chemical and biofuel industry who are hoping to gain from its development as potential feedstock. Unfortunately these were too late to post from my recent algae updates that mostly came from attending the BIO event.

Here they are in no particular order:

1. Carbonics acquires rights to Algae Bioreactor Technologies

2. Targeted Growth unlocks pathways to dramatically increase algae oil content

3. OriginOil announces breakthrough process for live algae oil extraction

4. SunEco Energy and J.B. Hunt Algae Power Hits the Road

5. W2 Energy completes commercial scale algae bioreactor

6. Plankton Power and RTDC proposed algae-to-biofuels pilot facility on Cape Cod

7. Algae Oil Lipid trigger breakthrough sustainable green technologies

And an interesting article from Wall Street Journal: Really Green Fuel: The EPA Opens the Door to Algae
