Theme 3:
Renewable Energy

The purpose of the renewable energy theme is to develop alternative energy solutions from microalgae biomass, including liquid fuels, solid fuels, and gas. Current activities are:

Recovery and upgrading of waste coal using microalgae to produce a coal-microalgae composite material called Coalgae®

Pyrolytic topping of Coalgae® to produce a fossil-biocrude oil blend, clean-burning solid fuel, and a synthetic natural gas

Production of a low smoke fuel (LSF) for household purposes

Processing of fossil-biocrude oil blends
