 Discover the greatest idea of this century

How to convert CO2 emissions to biofuels using sunlight, water and Algae�

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 “Biofuel 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 technology 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 “2 nd Algae Biofuel Summit 2009 from 8th to 10th September 2009 in India.

Forum | Exhibition | Awards

The IV Eurasian Energy Forum KAZENERGY provides a timely, in-depth management assessment for decision-makers on these key strategic shifts that will impact all Governments, companies, investors, financiers, and service/supply industries within Kazakhstan.

The IV Eurasian Energy Forum “KAZENERGY� will bring together over 800+ the most influential professionals in the Kazakhstan oil and gas industry. You will hear from 55+ top-level speakers, who are all recognised leaders and experts in Kazakhstan and international oil and gas markets, on their strategies for making those tough decisions that will allow them to become stronger and better placed contenders when the markets start to recover.

Eurasia in general and Kazakhstan in particular play an important role in ensuring the smooth transition to a new world energy order of sustainable development. In Kazakhstan this means attracting investment to the energy sector in highly competitive conditions.

World political and business leaders, in their relations with the governments of energy producing and exporting countries, are calling for the formation of strategic alliances as a rational alternative to the use of political leverage, and the major oil companies, as well as industrial and service companies, have significant experience at cooperating with the governments and other entities in such countries. This cooperation is based on the principles of preserving global energy security, achieving a balance of interests on world commodity markets, developing eco-efficiency and local content, introducing advanced technology, creating joint ventures and much else.

The goal of the IV Eurasian Energy Forum is to focus the attention of experts and key decision makers in the global energy commodities market on discussing the main issues of the energy sector’s development in a changing world market situation, formulating and agreeing a unified policy of common action, and using modern approaches to regulating relations of partnership in Kazakhstan’s oil and gas sector.

New Topics Covered at Printed Electronics Asia

Friday, July 24th, 2009

New Topics Covered at Printed Electronics Asia
By Raghu Das, CEO, IDTechEx

While some involved in OLEDs and OTFTs and moving out of the business of printed and potentially printed electronics, work on inorganic materials and compounds is increasing, and is at least half of the effort on the topic as a whole and will continue to be so. That is why the IDTechEx Printed Electronics Asia event in Tokyo on Sept 30 – Oct 1 gives this balanced view, with 40 speakers from 13 countries.

Covering the recent surge in activity in zinc oxide transistors, Dr Flora Li from the University of Cambridge, UK, presents on the fabrication and stability of Indium Zinc Oxide deposited at low temperature. Zinc Oxide is transparent and offers higher mobility compared to that of aSi or organic TFTs, and is therefore of great focus to display companies as a backplane technology, particularly for OLEDs. In contrast, Professor Elvira Fortunato presents on transistors on paper, where the paper substrate also doubles as the transistor dielectric. The Tokyo Institute of Technology also present on inorganic transistor developments.

Japan’s largest printing and packaging companies, Dai Nippon Printing and Toppan Printing, with revenues of approximately $16 billion each, will be presenting on their latest printed transistor work, as will the $80 billion consumer electronics giant Sony. Indeed, attendees joining the hosted company visits have the opportunity to visit these companies, including Toppan Forms and Hodogaya Chemical.

Reinventing organic electronics

While a shakeout in organic TFT developers continues, there is increased interest in the higher performance organic carbon nanotubes (CNTs).  Earlier this year Fujitsu, Japan, demonstrated carbon nanotube and graphene transistors, the later with a mobility of 2000cm2/Vs. NEC, Japan, has successfully printed CNTs onto plastic film at low temperature (below 200°C). In a different tack, US based Vorbeck Materials is developing printable graphene to be used as a viable alternative to expensive silver flake conductors. All these companies will be presenting their latest work at the event. In addition, the new IDTechEx report “Carbon Nanotubes & Graphene” covers the latest progress from 78 organizations around the world

Who is winning the race for the best barrier layer

The event features companies from US, Europe and Asia comparing the latest and best in transparent, flexible  barrier layers. Prof Beng Ong of A*STAR Singapore will reveal the closely held details of their impressive specifications, while Alcan packaging and Vitex give the latest work from the West.

Colour E-readers, flexible displays and RFID

One cannot miss the e-reader tipping-point that has been reached, thanks to successes at Sony, Amazon and many others. Now the next target is colour e-readers, and technology from Liquavista and Bridgestone are exposed at the event. Progress with displays from Samsung and Kodak are also covered, as are stretchable displays from the University of Tokyo. The $100+ billion Marubeni Corporation discusses RFID developments in Japan and Sunchon University, Korea, presents its progress with roll to roll RFID printing.

End use applications

As usual, this IDTechEx event also focuses on printed electronics applications and products. US based T-ink cover new applications involved printed conductors where they create new products and markets. In healthcare, Dr Tina Ng of PARC USA covers flexible printed sensor tape for diagnostics of mild traumatic brain injury; Imperial College UK looks at using printed lighting and photo detectors for medical diagnostics, and Power Paper Israel covers the success of printed batteries in the skin patch market, delivering cosmetics and ultimately drugs by iontophoresis.


Japan is one of the leaders in photovoltaic production, and after Germany, it has the largest PV install base in the World. We cover global photovoltaic developments including the new world record in OPV efficiency from US based Solarmer, at 6.77%, to CIGs. IDTechEx analyst Dr Harry Zervos analyses all the latest PV trends and technologies, giving ten year forecasts and the market reach of each technology.

Why attend Printed Electronics Asia

This event, unlike others, is not “more of the same”. It brings an international line up of leading academics and companies together with Asia’s leading exhibition on the topic. Many presentations are World firsts. The event sessions are simultaneously translated in Japanese and English. Over 300 attendees are expected based on 238 attending last year.

For more information see Attendees receive for free the IDTechEx report “Printed & Organic Electronics in East Asia”, profiling 196 organizations in the region, worth $2500. If you want to learn what is going on in the territory and meet the leading companies in the field, attend Printed Electronics Asia, hosted by the leading global analyst on the topic, IDTechEx.

This will be a half day webinar for clinical pharmacologists, scientists and pediatricians to discuss overcoming the scientific challenges in designing PK/PD studies to aid developing new pediatric medicines.

NextLevel Pharma’s focused and interactive webinar will look to concentrate on the position that pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic modelling and simulations have to answer the questions of how children metabolize drugs differently, how to assess optimal drug dosage levels and optimise the design of pediatric studies.

Experienced industry pharmacologists and pediatricians will join us to discuss recent developments and assess how to better understand drug interaction, determine the optimal dosage and report on efficacy in children.

Why participate?

  • Understand the need for pk/pk studies: the when, how and why in the eyes of the regulators.
  • Learn what roles pk/pd studies have in the development of pediatric drugs and how they can be used more effectively to determine dosages, measure efficacy and demonstrate value to the pediatric world.
  • Hear case study presentations from industry leaders on how to adapt methods used from adult to children and gain fresh perspectives from experienced pharmaceutical companies who have successfully integrated pk/pd into pediatric studies for optimal design.
  • Discover which approaches are best to predict dosage, utilize existing (adult) data, and understand the interactions between drug and child.

Who will benefit:

Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology Organisations:
Vice- Presidents, Directors, Managers;
Pediatrics, Pre-Clinical and Clinical Pharmacologists, Modelling and simulation specialists.

Pediatricians, pharmacologists and scientists involved in the development of new pediatric medicines
