DOE to accelerate algae-based biofuel development

Valerie Reed of the U.S. DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy talked about the direction the DOE is taking to accelerate the development of algae-based biofuels at the Pacific Rim Summit on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy held this week in Honolulu, Hawaii. She said the agency intends to develop advanced biofuels — hydrocarbons and other high-density fuels that can be drop in replacements for diesel and gasoline — in a more accelerated fashion than cellulosic ethanol. "We learned a lot over the past 20 years, and we believe we can apply that to a faster deployment phase", Reed said, adding that biomass-based liquid transportation fuels are going to be the only adequate displacements for jet fuel. "This is now becoming a priority fuel we need to consider, and that’s why we’re moving into the advanced biofuels arena", she said.
