This presentation will provide an overview of a process to produce algae bio-crude from algae grown in open ponds using non-potable water and non-arable soil.
The presentation provides some general background on biofuels and on the use of algae as a biomass source for making liquid fuels. The presentation focuses on R&D efforts related to processing algae in its wet state, which eliminates an energy intensive drying step.
Learn about the critical economic, environmental and social issues that will impact a biofuels project along with the technical programs that could enhance a particular project.
Algae provides one solution to help the US reduce its dependence on foreign oil and create new green jobs. Barry Cohen and Will Thurmond will discuss both the technology and the commercial framework for the New Green Crude.
