Abstract:Biodiesel is an eco-friendly, alternative biofuel that can be obtained from domestic renewable resources such as vegetable oils and animal fats. In addition, certain forms of algae have recently been found to be promising sources of oil from which biodiesel can be synthesized. … more
Abstract:This project will develop and evaluate a new process for converting algae-derived vegetable oil into a renewable diesel-like aviation fuel. The process uses a new approach to hydro-deoxygenation (HDO) and does not produce any unwanted glycerol as a by-product (as does the… more
Abstract:…, consume CO2, and are 50 times more productive than oilseed crops for producing oil on a per acre basis. The lipids they produce can be converted into biofuels such as biodiesel and renewable diesel, which can be combusted in a standard diesel engine. However, the algae in… more
Abstract:The United States needs to reduce its dependence on foreign oil by developing a renewable source of biodiesel fuel that is competitive with petroleum diesel but does not compete for scarce resources such as fresh water, arable land, and existing food crops. Algae are uniquely… more
Abstract:Compared to previous generations of sugars, starches, and lignocelluloses, microalgae are a promising feed for biofuels, which can help reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil. While the steps from algae growth to biofuel production have been performed at the bench scale, further… more
Abstract:… fuel. This project addresses one aspect of the algal biodiesel production chain: development of low-cost, high-efficiency algal biomass harvest and dewatering technology. The approach involves the development and verification of system models of the entire … more

Abstract:Microalgae hold great promise as a high-yield, non-food crop source of lipids for the production of biodiesel. However, a number of challenges need to be met. Two of the major challenges are the high costs of algae cultivation and harvesting (i.e., de-watering). Microalgae hold… more
Abstract:… elevated temperature and pressure for efficient, continuous transesterification of triglycerides (TGs) and esterification of free
fatty acids. Phase I research will test the capability of this catalyst to produce biodiesel using a variety of feedstocks (i.e. soybean oil, algae… more
Abstract:…, and pollution runoff from pesticides and fertilizers. Without the adoption of new sources of biofuel feedstocks, no significant reduction of imported petroleum will be achieved. This project will develop a unique photobioreactor design for the cultivation of algae as a… more
Abstract:… photobioreactor (PBR) and open ponds combined with novel separation technology. Though the combination of PBR and open pond technology has been used to produce nutraceuticals, the combined techniques have not been applied to the production of biodiesel from algae because… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is to develop a highly energy efficient, high throughput continuous flow fixed-bed reactor technology for cost-effective algae oil biodiesel production. Algae oil has emerged as one of the most promising sources for mass… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project applies newly developed technology to construct a smart Self-Assembled Monolayer (SAM) for the rapid detection of Paralytic Shellfish Toxins, (PSTs), which are neurotoxic seafood poisons produced by algae then accumulated… more
Abstract:…diesel industry while providing an essential fish feed supplement that could help reduce the reliance of aquaculture on fish oil and fishmeal. This reduced cost algal culture process could help to completely substitute fish oil supplementation with omega-3 enriched algae… more

Abstract:… particle size lending to a overall energy savings of $600,000.00 USD per 100,000 tons of materials utilized while benefiting the environment by removing an undesirable product from the shorelines of Lake Superior. In addition, granule manufactures add cooper as an algae… more
Abstract:… improved bioreactor technology will result in, at
minimum, a 6 to 7 fold increase in cell yield per liter of culture along with a considerable
reduction of lighting and cooling costs. If successful, this research and development will
revolutionize Mook Sea Farms algae… more
Abstract:Eutrophication of environmental waters from the influx of nutrients can result in ecosystem
degradation caused by excessive plant and algae growth. Identification and prevention of the nutrient
loading problem can be addressed with measurements from deployed instrumentation only… more
Abstract:Fresh water cyanobacteria harmful algal blooms (HAB), have potentially many adverse environmental impacts. For instance, bloom mats of filamentous algae are believed to reduce ambient light levels below those required for submerged aquatic vegetation to survive. Blue-green… more
Abstract:Carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in the atmosphere are the highest in over 650,000 years (Science, 11-25-05), reinforcing the need to slow or even reverse this upward trend. The combination of municipal wastewater treatment with microalgal biofixation of CO2 would represent a novel, cost-effective means… more

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
