Algoland: Biological Solutions to Clean Air and Clean Water |
Interesting projects here. Cynobacteria reactors fed with cement plant CO2 and treated landfill wastewater to make biomass. Another is Actively cultivating small shell mussels/bivalves for ocean algae control and as a another biomass source.

Inyenyeri - A Rwandan Social Benefit Company
Seems to be a fan assisted rocket stove of sorts using a proprietary fuel. They give away the stoves, and sell fuel by the month. Is the fan powered by a thermoelectric rig?

MarineBiomass – The official home of Marine Bio Energy
Uh using variable depth buoy/submarine setups seems a bit overkill, could achieve most of the same result with a long pipe for a local deep ocean upwelling to bring the necessary nutrients to the surface. But open ocean kelp farming is an interesting concept itself.

Water splitting–biosynthetic system with CO2 reduction efficiencies exceeding photosynthesis | Science
engineered bacteria eat CO2 and H2, output alcohols, so paired with a water cracking catalyst dumping H2 driven by solar panels, can beat natural photosynthesis efficiency

Horie-mon's new venture. Apparently commercializing a type of algae for biomass production for engineered nutrition, fibers, and biomass for biofuel production. Got the japanese government to bite, via NEDO.

Company touting "net negative carbon" fuel manufacture. I would call it more like net neutral. Sounds like they are making biochar while capturing syngas, just with a better gasifier and preprocessor. Might be interesting though.

2008-ECD-NHA-presentation.pdf (application/pdf Object)
Interesting use of recyclable hydroxides to reform biomass or coal/methane into hydrogen in one step at low temperatures with high hydrogen purity and no CO or CO2 production. Though if you want the CO or CO2, you can heat the resulting carbonate output (recaustication like at paper mills) to recover a relatively pure gas stream and recover the hydroxide for recycling back into the process inputs.

Single-Step Extraction | OriginOil - Breakthrough Algae Oil Technology
Interesting take on the algae lipid recovery process, similar to GM algae that excrete oil, since both processes use a tank with surface skimming for recovery. Basically a wet recovery process that skips the drying process of conventional biomass lipid recovery. Still kills the little guys, but you would end up doing that if biomass was a production target anyways, but that introduces the issues of whether or not the energy costs of drying are transferred to the biomass or should be charged to the lipids, and there is a secondary concern of what sort of changes occur in the biomass, that could potentially make it unattractive as a product for specific industries (maybe pharmaceuticals/nutriceuticals might be out, but straight animal feed and biomass feedstock should be alright)

Interesting steam reformer that takes clean biomass and converts directly to syngas for feeding a FT process, utilizing FT tail gas for indirect heating of the biomass. Claim low costs, might be could for an algae biomass feedstock.

Precer's Bioracer: Off-Road Vehicle Runs on Wood Pellets
A wood pellet furnace, stirling generator driven series hybrid electric ATV. I suppose this is for the semi-serious survivalist (I say semi only because if civilization collapses, it will be next to impossible to repair the thing should a critical electrical component fail, and the battery would fail eventually regardless)

Roving mobile processing plants to produce biofuels
Interesting concept for a compact biomass to liquid biofuel mobile processing plant, to upgrade low yield biomass to more easily transportable/usable biofuel. Still needs an external hydrogen source, so for practical purposes you will dragging along a CNG or LPG tank to supply the hydrogen reformer, unless somebody feels like running a high power electrolysis rig.

Fine-Tuning Growth Conditions Helps Cyanobacteria Flourish
Upping the phosphorus a bit means the limiters for growth are generally CO2 and light. Light you can do with tricky clear acryllic tubes and panels in novel arrangements. But the phosphorus is a problem. World supply is getting tighter due to industrial agriculture and runoff, so there is talk about peak phosphorus. Since we don't harvest sewage sludge and runoff for phosphorus, it gets trapped in sediment or washed out to sea. Most of the easy phosphorus sources are gone now.
