Biodiesel from Algae – Info, Resources & LinksWhile a number of bio-feedstock are currently being experimented for biodiesel production, algae have emerged as one of the most promising sources for biodieselproduction. Though research into algae as a source for biodiesel is not new, the current oil crises and fast depleting fossil oil reserves have made it more imperative for organizations and countries to invest more time and efforts into research on suitable renewable feedstock such as algae.Just by way of history, petroleum is widely believed to have had its origins inkerogen, which is easily converted to an oily substance under conditions of highpressure and temperature. Kerogen is formed from algae, biodegraded organic compounds, plankton, bacteria, plant material, etc., by biochemical and/or chemicalreactions such as diagenesis and catagenesis. Several studies have been conducted to simulate petroleum formation by pyrolysis. On the basis of these findings,it can be inferred that algae grown in CO2-enriched air can be converted to oily substances. Such an approach can contribute to solving two major problems: airpollution resulting from CO2 evolution, and future crises due to a shortage ofenergy sources.While algae are one of the more promising feedstocks owing to their widespread availability and higher oil yields, it is felt that there are not enough web resources that provide comprehensive information on biodiesel production from algae.This web page intends to be a one-stop resource for information and web links for biodiesel production from algae.We hope that you find this page to be of use.Any feedback and suggestions may kindly be sent to Narsi @ narsi@esource.inNote:The content for this page have been derived from Oilgae – a web resource dedicated to providing comprehensive resources for oil and fuel production from algae.See Oilgae – Biodiesel from Algae for more and up-to-date info on this topic.See also:What’s New & News in Energy – Get the latest from the NewNergy BlogGet the latest news on oil and biodiesel from algae at the Oilgae BlogGet the big picture on energy & alternative energy source from the Oilgae EnergySources Portal (Energy portal Home)Looking to Invest in Castor Oil Business?

14.Appendix1. What are algae?Algae (singular alga) is a term that encompasses many different groups of livingorganisms. Algae capture light energy through photosynthesis and convert inorganic substances into simple sugars using the captured energy. Algae range from single-celled organisms to multi-cellular organisms, some with fairly complex differentiated formCastor Oil Report - Have You Seen it Yet? NewAlgae have been traditionally regarded as simple plants, and some are closely related to the higher plants.Forms of AlgaeThe main branches/lines of algae are:Chromista - this line includes the brown algae, golden brown algae, anddiatoms. The plastids in these algae contain Chlorophylls A and C. ( see: BriefIntroduction to the Phaeophyta, Brown Algae – from Wikipedia)The Red Line this is an early branch of marine algae containing just Chlorophyll A. Red algae can often be seen coating wave washed rocks. A characteristic of red algae is that their plastids contain only one type of chlorophyll -- chlorophyll a. This is different from green algae and plants which have both chlorophyll a and b. (see: Introduction to the Rhodophyta, Red Alga – from Wikipedia)Dinoflagellates – these evolved on a separate line that includes, surprisingly, the ciliated protists. (see: Introduction to the Dinoflagellata from UMCP, Berkeley, Dinoflagellate Information – from MBARI, Dinoflagellate – from Wikipedia)The Euglenids this independent line of single celled organisms that include both photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic species (see: Euglenid – from Wikipedia)The Green Line, is related to plants. Plants and green algae have chlophylls A and B. ( see also: Introduction to Green Algae)The three most prominent lines of algae are the brown algae (Chromista), the redalgae, and the green algae, of which some of the most complex forms are foundsamong the green algae. This lineage eventually led to the higher land plants. The point where these non-algal plants begin and algae stop is usually taken to bethe presence of reproductive organs with protective cell layers, a characteristic not found in the other alga groups.See also:Algaculture from WikipediaLots of Algae Related Links – from University of Arizona Algae ClassAlgae Research from the Smithsonian InstitutionAlgaeBase Listing the Worlds AlgaeAlgae Description & Types2. Where do algae grow?Algae are some of the most robust organisms on earth, able to grow in a wide range of conditions.Algae are usually found in damp places or bodies of water and thus are common interrestrial as well as aquatic environments. However, terrestrial algae are usually rather inconspicuous and far more common in moist, tropical regions than dry ones, because algae lack vascular tissues and other adaptions to live on landAs mentioned above, algae grow in almost every habitat in every part of the world. The following are examples of non-marine (loosely termed
here) habitats.Don
