Pseudochoricystis

More than 40 Japanese corporations and academic institutions have created union to mutually work on a promising project to develop biofuels from algae. Auto giant Toyota Motor led the plan. You can use biltopliva in the popular car Toyota Hilux in the coming years between the industrialized countries could begin competing for the best use of new energy sources. Land of the Rising Sun is obliged to lead the issue of developing fuel from algae, according to Japanese researchers. Development carried out in two directions. The first cultivation of microalgae-kind Pseudochoricystis ellipsoidea, existing in the warm springs: they are hydrocarbons that are close properties to diesel fuel. Processing of algae biomass to ethanol, by analogy with the processing of corn and other crops – this is the second way.

Scientists believe that the number of received energy algae are not currently equal in plant diversity. According to the authors, large-scale production for the breeding of phytoplankton will address the problem of fuel not only for the ground, but also possibly for air transport. In place petroleum products – gasoline, diesel, aviation fuel will come bioethanol, biodiesel and biokerosin from algae. In addition, these industries can be placed anywhere, even in the desert. Followers of a new idea believe that the farm does not need fertile soil. Sunlight – rather weak source of energy, and the process of converting this light into energy (ie photosynthesis) is very inefficient and has a relatively low efficiency, so believes another part of the researchers. Even in the sunniest regions of the earth for a biofuel from algae would require more energy than is produced in the end result that is obtained by a negative energy balance. Topics Yet, in the same opinion all the participants in Frankfurt am Main, regarding this issue were unanimous: before the market will be a significant amount of bio-fuel from algae to pass a lot more time. So, the intention of carriers within a few years, fill it with fuel much of its aircraft fleet – pure utopia. Used Car Site mateiraly Ukrainian and World News
