    SCOTS SPOT SUPER-ALGAE IN BIOFUELS BREAKTHROUGH

    ‘Super-Algae’ Identified by Scottish Scientists for Biofuel Production

    Satya Sivani, August 10, 2015 (The Green Optimistic)

    “…[W]ith an aim to identify the ocean-based algae strains that are highly rich in oil content, [scientists from SAMS (Scottish Association for Marine Science)…explored the SAMS based Culture Collection of Algae and Protozoa (CCAP), one of the world’s prominent algal stores. The study unlocked two marine algal strains, Nannochloropis oceanica and Chlorella vulgaris, both which prove to be ideal sources of biofuels with their dry-weight oil content of more than 50%, and high efficiency in converting nutrients…As algae are easy to grow, require low maintenance, and are very abundant aqueous life forms that use solar energy to perform photosynthesis, scientists believe that they could become the sources of third generation biofuels…The scientists are yet to choose the best strains, in terms of oil content and productivity, among the shortlisted micro-algae, genetically engineer and mass culture them commercially, harvest and extract oil…” click here for more
