DOHA, Qatar – Qatar University (QU) has revealed groundbreaking research into the development of sustainable biofuels, as the Gulf state hosts the UN climate change conference COP18. The university’s project, in collaboration with Qatar Airways and Qatar Science and Technology Park (QSTP) is now into its third year. From a standing start, where the labs were nothing more than empty rooms, the research team has developed state-of-the-art facilities which are the best in the GCC and competitive internationally for this type of research.

Biologists at UC San Diego have demonstrated for the first time that marine algae can be just as capable as fresh water algae in producing biofuels. The scientists genetically engineered marine algae to produce five different kinds of industrially important enzymes and say the same process they used could be employed to enhance the yield of petroleum-like compounds from these salt water algae.

Innovationsakademie Biotechnologie

Heute mal ein wenig Off-Topic über meine Teilnahme an der Innovationsakademie Biotechnologie, aber schon im ersten Satz mit einem Aufruf an alle Algenforscher, Phyco-Entrepreneure und Photobioreaktor-Tüftler: Wenn nächstes Jahr die Innovationsakademie Biotechnologie wieder stattfindet – MITMACHEN! (Das ist keine Bitte…!). Ich war dabei und kann nur sagen – klasse! Da hatte ein interdisziplinärer Mob mit ordentlichem Gründungshunger ziemlich viel Spaß dabei, sich mit 200.000 Euro beschenken zu lassen. Aber fangen wir doch vorne an und klären erst mal, was die Innovationsakademie Biotechnologie eigentlich ist. Continue Reading →

Bioplastics from Algae – SPLASH project kicks-off

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Email this to someone ... thanks for sharing!

The Sustainable Polymers from Algae Sugars and Hydrocarbons (SPLASH) project with its 20 partners kicked off on 19 November. Research and business join forces in SPLASH to produce plastic from algae. The algae are little factories that produce the building blocks of plastic products, such as food packaging and fibres for rope and nets. The project is led by Wageningen Food & Biobased Research.

Algae can break down cellulose

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Email this to someone ... thanks for sharing!

Grown in a low-CO2 environment, algae are able to break down the cellulose found in plant matter and use the sugars released for energy. Members of Professor Dr. Olaf Kruse’s biological research team at Bielefeld University  have confirmed for the first time that a plant, the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, not only engages in photosynthesis, but also has an alternative source of energy: it can draw it from other plants. This finding could also have a major impact on the future of bioenergy. Continue Reading →

6th International Algae Congress – Present and potential industrial applications of microalgae

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Email this to someone ... thanks for sharing!

Woerden, November 2012 – Microalgae have been of major interest for producing biofuels in the last decade. Recently, development and focus was changed towards the use of microalgae in the food, feed, materials and chemical sector as well. The potential of micro algae and aquatic biomass is enormous. The developments follow each other in rapid succession. Continue Reading →
