Activity on algae energy is up sharply.
EPRI discussing field tests with algae developers and member power companies.
The recent rise in market oil prices has fueled increased
interest in algae energy. EPRI is discussing opportunities
to pilot both open-pond and photo bioreactor designs
with several algae developers and member power producers.
These projects will provide EPRI the data needed to
validate independently the performance of these systems,
including space requirements, biodiesel feedstock
production, and biofixation of flue gas CO2. Initial
due diligence, pending NDA, for algae energy technologies
is under development by Independence Bio Products
and UNLV. For more information, contact Brice Freeman
