9781468035957: Algae for Ethanol: Small Business Applications of Algae

This book is about small scale algae to ethanol production in the United States. Ethanol is a contentious issue. Many feel that it is contributing to worldwide rise in the cost of food, and that growing food, to create fuel, is at best, a zero sum game. Whatever your opinion, or politics on the subject, algae sidesteps all these issues. Why use algae for ethanol? • Algae can be grown on non-arable land not taking away from productive farmland. • Algae requires fewer inputs than tradi-tional sources. • The EROI - Energy Returned is much higher than Energy Invested or required to produce algae ethanol. • Making algae ethanol does not require a very complicated equipment or machinery to set it up. • Algae ethanol plant does not use food crops. • The alga to ethanol process produces many valuable by-products. • A by-product of the fermentation process is CO2…a valuable component needed in maximizing algae production. • You can press the oil from specific strains of algae to make biodiesel, and then use the le?? over biomass for ethanol…two transportation fuel products in one. This book will give you an overview of how algae can be converted to ethanol. In an age where our natural resources such oil, natural gas and even coal are becoming increasingly harder to find, becoming more of a threat to the environment and with prices soaring out of control, algae can be a renewable resource that can create a more environmentally friendly future for our planet.
