August 26, 2009 | Renewable Energy World Breakthrough Doubles Efficiency of Algae-to-Oil Production Aurora Biofuels said that it has succeeded in optimizing its base algae strains to more than double CO2 consumption and fuel production.
Background of the Solar Bio-Fuels Consortium The Focus of the Solar Bio-Fuels Consortium : Clean Fuels for the Future Rapid implementation of clean energy systems is needed to facilitate CO 2 stabilisation: In order to stabilise CO 2 levels between 450 and 550 ppm it is predicted that we are faced with the challenge of installing systems capable of producing energy free of CO 2 emissions, at a level almost equivalent to ~50-75% current global energy demand in 2005 (15 TW), in 20 years time ( Hoffert et al. 1998 ). Green algae and advanced bioreactor systems have significant practical and economic advantages for bio-fuel production over traditional crop plants.
