oilprice.ocm : Oil from Algae in Less Than an Hour

Researchers at the government-run Pacific Northwest National Laboratory PNNL say they have invented a continuous process for turning algae into oil faster, cheaper and more self-sustaining than anything that has come before it.The process involves drying the algae and removing all traces of water, which can represents 80% of the biomass, and then using solvents to extract energy-rich hydrocarbons from the dried material. The government team described the process as using a pressure cooker to transform algae into oil, only at much higher temperatures.“In a sense, we are duplicating the process in the Earth that converted algae into oil over the course of millions of years. We’re just doing it much faster,” Douglas Elliot, who led the research, told reporters.
