Algae as Biofuel Lecture

The Marjorie Barrick Museum presents a lecture on Using Green Algae for Biofuel with Dr. John C. Cushman.

Green algae are ideally suited as a non-seasonal, renewable energy resource for the arid western U.S. because they can be more productive than terrestrial crop feedstocks, can be grown on marginal lands with municipal waste, in brackish or saline water unsuitable for traditional agriculture, can leverage geothermal and solar resources, and provide widespread potential for recycling of CO2 from biomass, coal or gas-red power plants. This lecture will discuss current research methods to optimize algal production and compare production harvesting systems
