Algae might be the feedstock of the future for biodiesel and ethanol… if you know how to use it right.
This press release posted on Reuters.com says a new report from Research and Markets entitled “Algae For Fuel, Algal Oil, Biofuels, Ethanol, Biodiesel And The Future Of Petroleum And Green Energy: Global Markets, Technologies, And Opportunities: 2009-2020 Analysis and Forecasts” could offer the insight you need in the algae biofuels game:
This research provides an overview on what could become one of the most significant technological and economic events of the early 21st century: turning algae into fuel, i.e. algal oil, on a commercial scale. If this feat is accomplished, and it’s not certain it will be, it will have dramatic, disruptive consequences to oil producers, oil refiners, ethanol, biodiesel and other biofuels producers, biotechnology companies, agricultural producers, consumers, motor vehicle makers, regulators, R&D activities and investors, among others.
The report, due out in December, will offer a review of algae and an analysis of the algal oil market in terms of how it fits in the biofuels arena. You’ll be able to read for yourself profiles of 56 major players in the algal oil market, as well as information on 175 biofuels, ethanol and biodiesel companies and organizations.
