(Josh Knight) -- While algae might be a nuisance in your fish tank, researchers think it might be part of the answer to slowing greenhouse gas emissions at power plants, and ultimately climate change. As global carbon dioxide levels continue to go up, more mandates are likely to come down and power plants need solutions. About half of the electricity produced in the United States is done at coal fire plants like the Duke Energy East Bend Station in Boone County. That process releases gas into the air and now it's being trapped and used to grow algae. Then the algae can be turned into other important things.

He returned to the United States to work at the Boyer Center for Molecular Medicine at Yale Medical School for two years before establishing a biotechnology group at the Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois. In 1998, he moved to NASA Ames Research Center, where he established the Protein Nanotechnology Group. These researchers focus on building nanostructures using biomolecules from extremophiles-organisms adapted to extreme environments, such as high temperatures, high or low pH, ionizing radiation, or saturated salts. Using these robust biomolecules, and manipulating molecular recognition and self-assembly with genetic engineering, his team has built patterned nano-particle arrays for data storage and molecular scaffolds for enhancing enzyme activities. In addition to working at NASA, Trent was appointed Adjunct Professor in the Dept. of Biomolecular Engineering at the University of California at Santa Cruz in 2004. Two years later, he was awarded the prestigious Nano50 award for Innovation in Nanotechnology, and was elected Fellow of the California Academy of Sciences. Since then, Trent has initiated Global Research into Energy and the Environment at NASA (GREEN) with support from Google. Among other projects, Trent and the GREEN team are developing systems for producing a sustainable, carbon-neutral feedstock for the biofuels of the future. Trent's recent research and inventions are focused on methods for obtaining alternative fuels, processing municipal wastewater, and economically producing freshwater by desalination. In April 2009, he organized and led an international conference in Denmark entitled: Wind, Sea, and Algae. http://www.nasa.gov/centers/ames/research/2009/jonathan_trent.html http://www.youtube.com/user/AlwaysOnVideos http://www.youtube.com/user/AlwaysOnVideos Jonathan Trent, OMEGA Project Scientist, Bioengineering Branch, NASA Ames Research Center : AlwaysOn GoingGreenSV 2012 Keynote

It might seem surprising, but algae is one of the most powerful sources of energy we have access to on Earth. When dried algae is ground into a powder and refined, oil can be extracted from it. The result is nearly identical to traditional gasoline, but with far more benefits. Dave Hazlebeck, CEO of Global Algae Innovations, gave Seeker a tour of his algae farm in Kauai, Hawaii, and explained how his company is revolutionizing sustainable energy. "The fuel that we're producing is exactly the same in terms of performance as gasoline or diesel or jet, it's just a lot cleaner. I think the big difference is that [with] all the other biofuels, you're growing it and you're just getting biofuel. In this case, for every gallon of biofuel you get 10 pounds of food with it," Hazlebeck said. Hazlebeck believes his company is on the path to completely change the way we currently produce both oil and food. Not only can algae create biofuel, it can also be used to create animal feed. Currently, most animal and fish feed is made from corn or soy, which both use more water and energy to grow than algae. "There's studies that show with algae grown to replace animal feed, you could actually solve global warming to a large extent," Hazlebeck told Seeker. Algae can be used to create food for humans as well. New Wave Foods in Northern California created fake shrimp made from algae and other plants that actually looks, smells and even tastes like real shrimp. Because it's made from algae, the shrimp substitute also has the added benefit of being low in fat and extremely rich in nutrients, something that corn and soy are severely lacking. Growing algae for oil and food could also significantly reduce deforestation. According to Scientific American, the yields from algae are far more significant than crops like corn or soy. If all the fuel in the country was replaced with biofuel from corn, we would need a facility three times the size of the continental U.S. to produce it. But for algae, we would need a facility the size of Maryland. Additionally, algae can produce 40 times more food per acre than traditional crops. While showing the Seeker team around GAI's Hawaii facility, Hazlebeck explained that the algae farm is next to a power plant, which puts it in a very unique position. "[It] allows us to capture carbon dioxide and avoid that discharge and reuse it, and that prevents it from going into the atmosphere and causing global warming," he said. "If every power plant had an algae farm next to it, it could potentially solve the global warming issue entirely." The environmental benefits of algae are impressive, and because algae can grow in both freshwater and seawater, it's also very easy to produce. So, does that mean we'll all be filling our cars with algae gas at the pumps very soon? Not just yet. Hazlebeck and his team have run into a few setbacks since they began scaling up their operations. The most prohibitive issue has been the cost. When Global Algae Innovations began, a gallon of oil produced from algae was about $30 a gallon -- 10 times higher than it needs to be to work as a viable alternative to fossil fuel. But Hazlebeck and his team didn't give up, and they've continued to come up with solutions to decrease the cost. As of now, they almost have algae oil down to only $2 - $3 a gallon. Once GAI can get their algae production up to scale, Hazlebeck believes it will change the geopolitics of the world. "A lot of the reasons we have wars are because of fights over resources or the need for more resources. By creating a more equitable distribution with countries being able to make their own, it should lead to a more stable and peaceful world," he told Seeker. That's really the point of it all for Hazlebeck and GAI. They don't want to be the only company doing this; they want everyone working together because they truly believe using algae as a fuel and food source will change the world.

He's created plastic osmotic containers that will float below the surface of the ocean, grow algae, and then help it bloom into oil. He says the new method is more beneficial because algae can grow in a larger area and doesn't compete with agricultural land.

Lake Okeechobee was once the blue heart of Florida, pumping fresh water down to the Everglades and beyond. But now that a dike and canal system control its flow, water releases from the lake periodically create putrid mats of blue green algae. Scientists think water pollution is to blame, and if something isn’t done about it there could be irreparable damage to the environment, the local economy and people’s health.

As America takes steps to improve our energy security, home-grown fuel sources are more important that ever. One of the fuel sources of the future is algae, small aquatic organisms that convert sunlight into energy and store it in the form of oil. Scientists and engineers at the Energy Department and its national laboratories are researching the best strains of algae and developing the most efficient farming practices. This edition of Energy 101 shows how oil is extracted from algae and refined into sustainable biofuels. For more information on biofuels visit http://www.eere.energy.gov.

YOUR DESCRIPTION HAS REACHED THE LIMIT OF CHARACTERS ALLOWED AND WAS CUT. BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (Josh Knight) -- While algae might be a nuisance in your fish tank, researchers think it might be part of the answer to slowing greenhouse gas emissions at power plants, and ultimately climate change. As global carbon dioxide levels continue to go up, more mandates are likely to come down and power plants need solutions. About half of the electricity produced in the United States is done at coal fire plants like the Duke Energy East Bend Station in Boone County. That process releases gas into the air and now it's being trapped and used to grow algae. Then the algae can be turned into other important things. "We've made jet fuel, we've made renewable diesel fuel," said Biofuels Research Engineer Michael Wilson with the University of Kentucky. Going from algae to jet fuel may sound like a big jump, but making new materials out of coal burning byproducts has been going on for years. Doug Durst, Technology Development Manager with Duke Energy, explained the majority of what can be seen at a power plant isn't actually generating electricity. The coal burning and the spinning turbine are housed in one area and the rest is all environmental equipment. Over the years, as environmental laws are passed, new equipment is added that traps different chemicals. At this plant, things like sulfur, ash, and mercury are no longer released into the air, but it goes one step farther. The byproducts created while capturing these chemicals can sold and used in concrete and even drywall manufacturing. "The flue gas coming from a coal fire plant, ten percent of it is CO2," Durst said. Nitrogen is the most abundant gas coming from the stack (also the most abundant gas naturally found in the atmosphere) and the part you can see is predominantly water vapor. The University of Kentucky and Duke Energy have partnered on this project to capture the flue gas and grow algae. Algae research is happening around the world, but this is the only place in the country where the team is tied into an actual power plant. The gas coming out the stack is actually the same gas running through the tubes. "We've got it in an applied nature at a pilot level and now we're just going to be improving efficiencies," said Wilson. Algae are growing in clear tubes several feet tall. "Algae are microscopic water balloons, dissolved and very diluted in water," said Wilson. Like all plants, they grow and make food using carbon dioxide, sunlight, and water through photosynthesis. Inside the tubes with the flue gas, they have all the carbon dioxide they could want. Wilson said, "it's a Kentucky alga, readily found in many of the waterways around here. We're harnessing its ability to do photosynthesis very, very fast. So it's consuming CO2 as it grows." At this point, the amount of gas being diverted is miniscule, "It's the equivalent to a leak in the duct work," said Durst. However, they're proving it's possible. "They call it research for a reason, there's a 're' in research, so you're going to do it over and over again until you find a way that works," Wilson said. In order to scale this up, to take on all of the flue gas, it would be a much bigger operation. "We're talking hundreds of acres, potentially square miles. That's just a factor of how quickly the organism grows and how much CO2 is being generated," Wilson said. "If you look at that from a positive side, you could say that's an awful lot of biomass we're producing, an awful lot of final product," he added. "They can double every day. So you could potentially take a harvest out of this reactor, if the growth conditions are r

More info, instructions, and purchases are available at: www.Santa-Monica.cc This is the largest seaweed cultivator / algae scrubber available. It installs by just setting it on the water surface. Installation can be in a reef pond; koi pond, sump, scrubber-sump, display aquarium, or nutrient reservoir tank. It requires a strong air pump such as the Coralife SL-38, SL-65, or the silent Hailea ACO-9720 or 9730. The SURF8 (tm) is the world's first dual-compartment seaweed cultivator / algae scrubber, and is also the largest upflow algae scrubber® (UAS®) ever made. Dual compartments allow one to continue growing when you clean/harvest the other, and also adds floating stability. pH stabilization can be enhanced too. The SURF8 (tm) with two growth compartments, ribbons, and 96+ square inches of horizontal Green Grabber ® ultra rough growth surfaces grabs new growth right away, and holds on to the growth better than any other surface. And can grow it up to 1 inch thick too. This is algae that will not be growing in your tank! This is about 8 small handfuls of algae/seaweed, and is designed to absorb the nutrients from this much feeding per day: 8 Frozen cubes, or 80 Pinches of flake, or 80 Square inches (500 square cm) of nori, or 22 grams of pellets The physical size or number of gallons or liters of water in your tank or sump does not matter. But the amount of problem rock does: Each 50 pounds (23 kg) of rock with nuisance algae adds 1 more cube of daily feeding to the above amounts. If you feed more than the above amounts, you can get multiple SURF8 units, or a combination of SURF8, SURF4, HOG3 or HOG3x models.
