Discover the greatest idea of this century
How to convert CO2 emissions to biofuels using sunlight, water and Algaeâ€?
Ever rising prices of liquid fuels like diesel are posing serious threat to the bottom line of large energy users. Establishing a project to create a captive source of Biodiesel using CO2 emission, sunlight & water is the wisest strategy for industries!
Algae farming for oil is the biggest opportunity of this decade
Billions of years ago the earth atmosphere was filled with CO2. Thus there was no life on earth. Life on earth started with Cyanobacterium & algae. These humble photosynthetic organisms sucked the atmospheric CO2 and started releasing oxygen. As a result, the levels of CO2 started decreasing to such an extent that life evolved on earth. Once again these smallest organisms are poised to save us from the threat of global warming.
Algae, like corn, soybeans, sugar cane, Jatropha, and other plants, use photosynthesis to convert solar energy into chemical energy. They store this energy in the form of oils, carbohydrates, and proteins. The plant oil can be converted to biodiesel; hence biodiesel is a form of solar energy. The more efficient a particular plant is at converting that solar energy into chemical energy, the better it is from a biodiesel perspective, and algae are among the most photosynthetically efficient plants on earth.
Growdiesel Consortium, is engaged in development of a technology that could allow companies to recycle emitted CO2 from flue gases to convert it to â€œBiofuel and also earn Carbon Credits. It is a golden opportunity for companies to kill two birds with one stone! Growdiesel technology will allow the capture and recycling of CO2 from smokestacks, fermentations and any other emission. The best part of the technologyÂ is that industrial facilities do not need large modifications to host a Growdiesel algae farm.
In order to facilitate an understanding of benefits of establishing an Algae Biofuel project, Growdiesel Climate Care Council is hosting â€œ2 nd Algae Biofuel Summit 2009 from 8th to 10th September 2009 in India.
