Welcome to Our Algae Coloring the Future Green Site
You arrived at the right place to have information about algae for biofuels or just algae biofuels. Here you will find scientific, technical and practical information about using Algae to produce greenfuels, biofuels and bioplastics. We are a group of successful scientists, experts, algae farmers, businessmen and algae biofuels growers .
We are firm believers that renewable energy (i.e: algae green-bio-fuels, solar energy) will play a vital role to complement and even replace the petroleum era.
After all, fossil oil is nothing less than algae that have undergone a long period of chemical transformation submitted to elevated temperature and pressure.
As Algae is the petroleum raw material, we can affirm with high level of confidence that our green-stuff is in reality one of the best biofuels feedstock.
2nd Edition of Algae Coloring The Future Green eBook Available at Amazon.com (Kindle), Barnes & Noble (Nook) and Google Play (soon)
The revised and applied 2nd edition of ebook Algae Coloring the Future Green of Drs. John Kyndt and Aecio D’Silva is intended for scientists, entrepreneurs, students, engineers, algae growers and investors that are interested in the potential algae have for fuel production, as well as, manufacture of high value chemicals, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
Although algae have been thought of as a potential fuel source in the past, it wasn’t until the skyrocketing fossil fuel prices in 2008 that this miniscule source of power was taken seriously.
Previously mainly known as “pond scum” and a plague for pool owners and fish farms, algae are now being seen as a promising and emerging investment for future energy sources. In the last two years there have been several announcements of million dollar investments from both private and government sources into the algae for fuel concept.
Think for example of the Exxon-Mobile announcement of a $600 million investment in algae biofuels, and the recent $45 million DOE funding of the National Alliance on Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts (NAABB) to perform algae-derived fuel research.
With all these million dollar investments and with even the world’s largest airplane maker, Boeing, turning its eyes on algae, it is clear that the race to develop the next generation fuel from algae is on.
This publication provides the foundation for a strategy development, based on the industry strength and opportunities, while mitigating its risks and managing threats.
It provides an in-depth analysis of the current algae industry with advice on how to avoid common pitfalls when growing and harvesting algae yourself. It also highlights the emerging opportunities in this exciting field.
Both Drs. Kyndt and D’Silva are renowned scientists and entrepreneurs who have been actively promoting the potential of using algae for sustainable production of fuel, feed, chemicals and pharmaceuticals in their papers, books, conferences, workshops in many parts of this world.
The authors introduced algae for biofuel research to the Mike Cusanovich’ Lab at the University of Arizona. Mike was very supportive of the concept and as a consequence, his lab was one of the driving forces to create the National Alliance for Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts (NAABB).
