Algae Biofuel Process by Algenol Yields 8000 Gallons per Acre at $1.27 per Gallon

The future of domestic renewable fuel production could be a bright one, if the work of Algenol is scaled up to commercial levels, because the company can already produce continuous yields of 8000 gallons of algae biofuels per acre per year, without using any arable land that would be better suited to food production. Biofuels are a controversial topic for some environmentalists, because for certain feedstock crops, such as corn, the benefits of producing ethanol biofuel on arable land may…

Ocean Energy Turbine Prototype Seeks Crowdfunding

When it comes to viable renewable energy sources, we’re all probably well aware of wind power, solar panels, and hydroelectricity, but there’s another option, and one that could potentially replace our dependence on fossil fuels and nuclear energy. The energy available from ocean currents has a big advantage over solar and wind power, in that these currents are consistently reliable, and don’t have down periods, such as can happen when the winds are calm and the sun is down. This…
