prices at which algae oil can be produced.  VG Energy is planning studies to demonstrate these yields in practice. Mr. Sheehan is currently the Biofuels Coordinator in the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota, and was previously a project manager at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, CO.

The process that VG Energy uses to boost algal oil production is a direct result of work undertaken by Dr. Newell Rogers for cancer treatment. This process, called Metabolic Disruption Technology (MDT), is meant to disrupt cancer cells' ability to burn fat reserves, making them more susceptible to traditional treatments. The same technology appears to also act as a long sought lipid trigger to cause algae cells to store increased fat, making them more productive as an energy source. When the process was applied to algae cells in the lab, extractable lipid, or fat, production was increased by a minimum of 300%. Additionally, the process enables the cells to release fats outside the cell walls, making much of the algae recyclable. The combination of increased lipid production and recyclability appears to make algae economical as a source for a potential biofuel. Dr. Newell Rogers, the Raleigh R. White, Jr. Endowed Professor of Surgical Research at Texas A&M Health Sciences Center and Scott and White Hospital in Temple, Texas, is continuing her research into biofuel technology.
