Algae Biofuel Can Cut CO2 Emissions by at Least 50% Petroleum Fuels

Submitted by on September 23, 2013 – 12:51 pmNo Comment

(UPI.com)  Algae-derived biofuels can reduce the life cycle of carbon dioxide emissions by at least 50 percent compared to petroleum fuels, a U.S. university study found.

The peer-review study — the first to analyze real-world data from an existing algae-to-energy demonstration scale farm — indicates the environmental and energy benefits of algae biofuel are at least on equal footing with, and likely better than, first-generation biofuels, Algal Biomass Organization of Preston, Minn., said Thursday in a release.

“This study affirms that algae-based fuels provide results without compromise,” Executive Director Mary Rosenthal said. “With significant emissions reductions, a positive energy balance, nutrient recycling and CO2 reuse, algae-based fuels will be a long-term, sustainable source of fuels for our nation.”

The study, authored by Andres Clarens, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Virginia, is a life-cycle analysis of an algae cultivation and fuel production process used at pre-commercial scales, the non-profit organization said.  READ MORE and MORE (Biofuels Digest) and MORE (Algae Biomass Organization) and MORE (CleanTechnica)    Abstract
