Schneealgen in Kultur

Seit mehr als 20 Jahren stehen kälteangepasste Süßwasseralgen, die sogenannten kryophilen Schneealgen, im Mittelpunkt des Interesses einer Forschergruppe des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Biomedizinische Technik IBMT unter der Leitung von Dr. Thomas Leya. Am 31. Juli 2013 bricht ein Team aus fünf Experten, darunter Biophysiker, Geologen und Pflanzenphysiologen zu einer vierwöchigen Expedition nach Spitzbergen auf. In diesem Jahr kommt modernste Technik zum Einsatz. Seit Jahren untersuchte und neue Regionen mit Schneealgenbesiedlung werden auf dem Eis mit einem der modernsten Flugsysteme, einem achtmotorigen Helikopter der Firma Ascending Technologies GmbH, kartiert.

San Diego and Munich, July 16, 2013 – Sapphire Energy, Inc.,a company producing algae-based Green Crude oil, and the technology company The Linde Group today announced they will expand their partnership to commercialize a new industrial scale conversion technology needed to upgrade algae biomass into crude oil. Together, the companies will refine the hydrothermal treatment process developed and operated today by Sapphire Energy at pilot-scale. In addition, they will jointly license and market the technology into an expanded list of industries, including algae, municipal solid waste, and farm waste, in order to upgrade other biomass sources into energy. The agreement spans a minimum of five years through the development of Sapphire Energy’s first commercial scale, algae-to-energy production facility. Continue Reading →

Emiliania-huxleyi

Cal State San Marcos researchers unlocked the genome for a type of algae found around the globe, a finding they said has potential applications to fields ranging from climate change to dentistry. The study sequenced 13 strains of the phytoplankton Emiliania huxleyi, to document the first algal “pan-genome:” a set of genes shared by diverse algal varieties. While the different strains share 70 to 80 percent of their DNA, about 20 to 30 percent of their genes are unique to each strain, allowing them to inhabit virtually all the world’s oceans except the polar seas.

Bio Protection of Wine via Algae

Fungi like downy mildew reduce wine yield and impair wine quality. In conventional as well as organic viticulture grape growers usually apply copper for preventing these fungal diseases. In the ProEcoWine project funded by the EU, on behalf of five companies the Fraunhofer IGB, the University of West Hungary and Laboratoire PHENOBIO develop a novel bio-plant protection product derived from microalgae to replace copper fungicides.
