Converting algae to biofuels

Bioscience, Biosecurity, Health

Conversion of algae to biofuels requires dewatering before extracting usable products—a daunting task since the mass of water in a growth pond exceeds that of the algae by 999 to one. Recently, LANL physicists and bioscientists genetically engineered magnetic algae to investigate a novel harvesting method: pulling algae from the water with a magnet. This project is in early stages, and the LANL team is working to optimize it.
