Plankton Power and RTDC announce proposed algae-to-biofuels pilot facility on Cape Cod
Date:8/4/2009

Woods Hole, we want to make the MMR not just a center for the National Guard and Coast Guard, but an incubator for cutting-edge initiatives on algae as fuel, wind and solar energy, and unmanned aircraft for joint military and oceanographic research. The use of algae as a fuel has major potential and can be nurtured right on Cape Cod."

Beginning in autumn 2010, Plankton Power expects to initiate pilot-scale operations to generate up to one million gallons of biodiesel per yearenough fuel to supply Cape Cod's current biodiesel usage. The company projects that commercial-scale operations on 100 acres could eventually yield 100 million gallons of biodiesel, which would meet 5% of the demand for diesel and home heating fuel in the state of Massachusetts.

"We are extremely pleased by the vision and commitment of our consortium partners to achieve the infrastructure, resources, and collaboration necessary to advance commercial development of promising algae-to-biofuel technology on the Cape," said Curtis S. Felix, CEO and Founder of Plankton Power. "The MMR location is ideal for this pilot projectthe on-site wastewater treatment plant would provide an excellent source of nutrients for the algae, and MMR's location close to the Cape Cod Canal would provide a convenient source of seawater as well as a renewable thermal energy source for algae growth and temperature control. We acknowledge the National Guard and the state of Massachusetts for providing critical support to this initiative."

"The Cape Cod Algae Biorefinery initiative provides a perfect example of the tremendous economic development potential created by fusing the expertise and resources of the Cape's research brain trust to achieve industry goals and government objectivesin this case, the federal mandate to quadruple biofuel use by 2020," said Robert A. Curtis, CEO of RTDC. "By joining forces, this consortium is positioning the Cape and Massachusetts for a leadership role i
