Matt Pushkin was hanging around the Dell ReGeneration booth at CES 2008, and we got to talking about alternative energy. Turns out, he works for Aquatic Energy, who are harvesting algae in Lousiana and turning it into biodiesel. I asked him to share what he's doing with us, and he gladly agreed.
Matt's company is taking CO2 from local industry and pumping it into specially built algae ponds, which are harvested every three to five days. While one acre of soy can produce about a barrel of biodiesel a in a year, the same land dedicated to this unique process produces between 1500-2000 barrels of B100 a year, depending on how sunny it is. Talk about solar power!
