Algal Research is an international phycology journal covering all areas of emerging technologies in algae biology, biomass production, cultivation, harvesting, extraction, bioproducts, and econometrics. It publishes original research and reviews on algal biology (phylogeny, molecular traits and metabolic regulation of microalgae for biofuels), algal cultivation (phototrophic systems in open ponds, heterotrophic systems), algal products and economics, algal harvesting and extraction systems, new conversion technologies for algal biomass and technoeconomic modeling of algae biofuels systems.
Turning humble seaweed into biofuel
The sea has long been a source of Norway's riches, whether from cod, farmed salmon or oil. Now one researcher from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) researcher hopes to add seaweed ...
Researchers advance algae's viability as a biofuel
Lab success doesn't always translate to real-world success. A team of Michigan State University scientists, however, has invented a new technology that increases the odds of helping algae-based biofuels cross that gap and ...
Algae to crude oil: Million-year natural process takes minutes in the lab
Engineers have created a continuous chemical process that produces useful crude oil minutes after they pour in harvested algae – a verdant green paste with the consistency of pea soup.
