The Energy Department on January 17 announced that up to $10 million available to the potential of bio-fuels from algae is produced. The funding supports research projects to increase the productivity of algae cultivation systems and demonstrate algae harvesting and processing technologies, such as centrifugation and extraction. The Department encourages applicants from industry to apply universities and laboratories April 1, 2013.
These research projects maximize the yield from algae and production of bio-fuels helps intermediates that are the products of the cultivation of algae and preprocessing to improve. The yield of biofuel helps intermediates, lowering the cost of biofuels, and while enhancing the sustainability of biofuels algae by capturing energy from all parts of the raw material available. On a large scale, speed could help these technologies marketing of domestically produced low-cost biofuels from algae. A portion of the costs by at least 20% of the total cost of the project is required. The Department of energy progress warning message is displayed.
