DOE awards UC San Diego consortium $9 million for algal biofuels research
Date:6/28/2010

rch laboratories at UCSD, UC Davis, the University of Nebraska and Rutgers University for research to develop new approaches to algal crop protection, improve nutrient recycling in growing algae as well as for the development of new genetic tools to improve the production of fuel from algae.

"These are the three most important areas right now for the development of algae for biofuel production," he said. "This basic research will enable us to make significant improvements in the production of bioenergy from algae."

The additional $3 million to the project will be provided by seven commercial partnersSapphire Energy, Sempra Energy, Life Technologies, General Atomics, Chevron, Praxaire and W.R. Grace.

The announcement of the DOE award was made today by U.S. Department of Energy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Cathy Zoi. Funding for the UCSD-led consortium will complement existing algal research, development and demonstration projects supported by DOE's Biomass Program.

"Partnerships such as these allow the unique capabilities of individual entities to be brought together to hasten the development of new technology in algal biofuels," she said in DOE's press release.
