Biodiesel aus Mikroalgen

Biodiesel aus Mikroalgen, Algendiesel

Das aktuell wohl am meisten diskutierte Thema der Algenwirtschaft ist die Gewinnung von Energieträgern aus Algen. Biodiesel wird dabei wahrscheinlich am häufigsten genannt. die Herstellung dieses Kraftstoffs aus Algenöl liegt, analog zu anderen Pflanzenölen, zunächst nahe. Allerdings sei vorab bemerkt, dass es viele verschieden Möglichkeiten der Gewinnung von Algenkraftstoffen gibt. In diesem Artikel möchte ich aber explizit auf den „klassischen“ Algen-Biodiesel in Form eines Fettsäuremethylesters (FAME) eingehen. Continue Reading →

Marriage of Algae Gene to a Weed for Better Biofuel Production

Algae Gene in Plant

Fat worms confirm that researchers from Michigan State University have successfully engineered a plant with oily leaves ­– a feat that could enhance biofuel production as well as lead to improved animal feeds. The results, published in the current issue of The Plant Cell, the journal of the American Society of Plant Biologists, show that researchers could use an algae gene involved in oil production to engineer a plant that stores lipids or vegetable oil in its leaves – an uncommon occurrence for most plants.

Was Grünalgen im Dunkeln treiben: Kaum bekannter Stoffwechselweg zur Wasserstoffproduktion

Wasserstoff aus Algen

Wie Grünalgen im Dunkeln Wasserstoff herstellen, berichten Biologen der Ruhr-Universität im „Journal of Biological Chemistry“. Damit haben sie einen bislang kaum untersuchten Mechanismus zur Produktion des Gases aufgedeckt; denn üblicherweise interessieren sich Forscher für die lichtgetriebene Wasserstoffsynthese.
