    I really, really hope you’re right. We’ve got to run down every possible alternate source of energy to see if it can be viable. Biodiesel sounds exciting, but we’ve got to start making it……

    You might be right.The way coal, natural gas and oil companies are spending their money on adverts right now, shows us how desperate they are getting. They need to keep the denial train running. There must be a ‘clean coal’ commercial every hr. on every network lately. I will be teaching Ecology this term and I think I will be talking about this push to keep Americans in denial of two things, inevitability of fossil fuels running out and AGW.

    It requires going beyond the diorefinerías to ensure that algae could one day be materialized as a major industrial and economic alternative.

    If everyone were on board with improving the world then the world wouldn’t need any improving! 😀

    I’m sorry but I have to refer to a quote from the video saying “the once stable state of the earths environment”.
    That simply couldn’t be more scientific wrong! wrong wrong wrong…
    The earths environment have never ever been stable. It hate to remind you that for less than 10,000 years ago the earth was gripped in an ice age and the temperature have risen about 10 degrees C since then. That’s y definition NOT a stable environment!

    you should share with us your knowledge of why it is.

    you should be concerned about both CO2 reduction and oil. As both will steer our future toward sustainable living or destruction of the environment which will of course destroy most of the industy we already have in place.

    If algae could be made to create portland cement or an additive to portland cement, then in addition to fuel, cement for building could be made. The reason that this is important is that currently cement is usually made by burning fossil fuel to burn limestone into cement and that is a major user of fossil fuels. This video mentions a “mineral” as a byproduct.

    It’s a start for sure! Though I feel carbon sequestriation will be the main motivator for driving the development of algae farms.. I reckon it won’t be long until industries are buying and selling “carbon-units” to/from algae farms to be able to call themselves carbon neutral.. The biofuel production will be an added bonus, but not the main event! Just my opinions though!

    Quite right. Though I’m still wondering, the American Southwest has plenty of sunny days. Using water from well treated sewage plants plus CO2 from a coal fired or trash to energy power plant might get the ball rolling.

    Then again, I may be dreaming…….

    It can, but it won’t. Certainly not in the next 20-30 years at least. Growing and producing biofuels using algal species is pretty well practised now, but none of the scale up technologies can provide high enough yields to make them anywhere near competitive with fossil fuels yet. It’s just not economically viable yet.

    before you start calling others “retard” or “moron,” practice writing comments that are actually coherent.

    I have been working on algae fuels as well as converting algae ions into electric power, small scale but very positive results come see my algae videos,
    maybe we can work together?

    Have you tried ultrasound? I’m alien to that technology, but I know it can break the cells, make them decant and have the oil floating on the water. Just figuring.

    don’t be sad, the opportunity to gain from the knowledge is lost as soon as things go viral.  Why don’t you just use the knowledge and create a new company from it? That way you can get off your teacher salary
