Biofuel - algael biofuel - sustainable fuel - third generation biofuel - sustainable liquid fuel - Algae fuel - algal biofuel - algal oil 

Algae biofuels are liquid fuels made from algae. Whether grown in open ponds or in photobioreactors, algae biofuels provide all the benefits of petroleum based fuels without the envirnmental cost. They are not perfect yet - not yet available in sufficiently large volumes or low price - but as the best bet to replace petroleum oil, their future is looking bright.

If CO2 is the result of burning or the oxidation of hydrocarbons and the hydrocarbons were formed at the base with organic matter, mostly plants, what was this vegetable matter or organic carbon formed from? The answer was simple: from solar energy, CO2 and H2O (no plant can live without CO2 and without CO2 life as we know it would not exist). So why not reverse this redox cycle by using the CO2 resulting from combustion to create a reduction process and recover its carbon to convert it into oil?


Virent’s patented technology enables the production of diesel fuel from bio-based feedstocks. Our BioForming® process produces industry-ready molecules for high-performance diesel fuels. Our technology uses a wide variety of both cellulosic and conventional plant sugars, providing an economical route to sustainable bio-based diesel fuels that are identical to their existing petroleum-derived counterparts.


Cellana Photosynthetic Production System


The use of marine microalgae to produce feedstocks for fuel and energy is one way to decrease the U.S. need to import crude oil. At Cellana, we project the conversion of algae to oil will be competitive with petroleum-based crude oil with or without government mandates or subsidies afforded to alternative energy solutions, and at a cost far below any other biofuels feedstock crop. Government mandates and assistance and incentive programs can, however, significantly accelerate the initial commercialization of this technology and ensure a more rapid adoption throughout the United States and other parts of the industrialized world.
Algae.Tec Ltd
Algae crude to transport fuel technology. Algae.Tec is a globally focused advanced algae-to-biofuels company. Algae.Tec is commercialising an enclosed modular high-yield algae-to-biofuels growth system to produce fuel for transport. The fuel is designed to be a  drop-in replacement solution that is cost competitive, and contributes to energy security. The Algae.Tec photo bio-reactors produce high-value sustainable fuels such as biodiesel and jet fuel.


Algenol Biofuels
Algenol is a global, industrial biotechnology company that is commercializing its patented algae technology platform for production of ethanol and green chemicals. Our patented DIRECT TO ETHANOL® technology enables the production of ethanol for less than $1.00 per gallon using sunlight, carbon dioxide and saltwater and targets commercial production of 6,000 gallons of ethanol per acre per year. 


Aurora Algae


Aurora leads the world in the development of high-tech farming; a concept necessary and well timed to catapult us into a new era of innovation. Biochemists and engineers at Aurora have spent years focusing on the technology and science of growing algae. With more than a dozen patents filed on our science, and more than another dozen on our engineering innovations, we have developed processes that are truly revolutionizing farming as we know it.

Biotechnology that Creates Renewable Oils from Microalgae. Solazyme couples proprietary strains of algae with standard industrial biotechnology; converting what the earth produces naturally into what society needs most - oil. Solazyme's proprietary biotechnology platform creates renewable oils by harnessing microalgae's prolific oil production capabilities. Through world-class molecular biology and chemical engineering capabilities, we're able to cost-effectively produce high-value tailored oils.


Sapphire Energy


Sapphire Energy, Inc., one of the world leaders in algae-based green crude oil production, today announced it has secured $144 million in a Series C investment funding. The Series C backers include Arrowpoint Partners, Monsanto, and other undisclosed investors.  All major Series B investors have participated. With this investment round, Sapphire Energy’s total funding from private and public sources substantially exceeds $300 million. 
Bioprocess Algae
BioProcess Algae LLC designs, manufactures, and operates integrated systems to support bioreactor operations and dewatering efforts. Current demonstration activities are supported by commercial scale modular systems that include Grower Harvester™ cultivators, flue gas tie-ins and fully automated operational support such as pH and temperature control, CO2 and nutrient delivery, CIP capability, dewatering and water reuse.


Kent Bioenergy


Today, Kent BioEnergy has emerged as an industry leader in the development of advanced concepts for culturing and harvesting microalgae - single-celled aquatic plants. With the combination of our solid applied research foundation and extensive practical experience, the company remains focused on producing competitively priced solutions for a wide range of industrial needs.


Muradel is committed to developing the most sustainable and energy efficient algal biofuel. Algae are grown in open raceway ponds using seawater, eliminating the demand for precious freshwater while also enabling natural management against contaminating microorganisms. Nutrients are recycled to minimise waste as well as cost.  Low energy continuous flocculation and concentration processes create a concentrated product that is suitable for direct treatment into biofuels.


A sustainable ecosystem that generates energy while treating wastewater. Ennesys’ technological innovation recycles the neighborhood wastewater to grow micro-algae. Algae cultivation enables, on one hand, wastewater treatment, and on the other hand, energy generation (production of biomass). Moreover, Ennesys’ technological innovation can be implemented directly on buildings or in their immediate vicinity.
Algae Systems
Algae Systems turns problems into resources, pollutants into products. We recycle wastewater from cities and CO2 from the atmosphere to create fuel, fertilizer and pure water. We grow energy without competing for the land and water needed to grow food.

Genesis Biofuel
Genesis Biofuel engineers, builds and sells turnkey algal biodiesel refineries to cement companies. These refineries maximize the sequestration of CO2, offering a highly efficient method of pollution control that makes money for our customers. These refineries take CO2 directly from the flue. Combined with sunlight, the CO2 is used to grow algae in a highly controlled environment. The refinery has two end products: biomass and biodiesel.
