Long Future sustainability,
Welcome to the SEA O2 website.
My name is Guy Lane, I am a sustainability entrepreneur, advisor and novelist. I believe that I have lived a future-life in which the planet was fine because in the early 21st Century the humans 'got a Moogh on' and became sustainable. In this present life I search for the early stages of these sustainable technologies and ideas and I share them on the the SEA O2 website.

|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?||

photobioreactors (PBR) for a continuous and industrial production of
microalgae. Our new and innovative system of photobioreactors "hanging
gardens" massively amplifies the photoactive volume, reduces the energy
input for cultivation and considerably increases the quality and
quantity of the algae produced. Today, algae are considered as the most
promising renewable raw materials for many future applications.
|Virent’s BioForming platform is based on a novel combination of Aqueous Phase Reforming (APR) technology with modified conventional catalytic processing. The APR technology was discovered at the University of Wisconsin in 2001 by Virent’s co-founder and chief technology officer, Dr. Randy Cortright. The BioForming platform expands the utility of the APR process by combining APR with catalysts and reactor systems similar to those found in standard petroleum oil refineries and petrochemical complexes.||

|Green algae are
low maintenance, easy to grow and very abundant aqueous life forms that
use sun light energy to perform photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is a
biological process which produces biomass (sugars or oils),
oxygen and the high-energy molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate) from
carbon dioxide (CO2) and water. All biomass, whether it is sugars or
oils, is convertible into bio-fuels, most commonly bio-ethanol and

Systems has selected a specific methodology to be applied to each of
the three steps in the process of producing algae oil, which are 1)
grow algae 2) harvest the algae and 3) extract the Oil and biomass. The
manner and order in which our process functions is, in some cases, a
unique departure from the way in which algae has been grown, harvested
and oil extracted in laboratory environments.
