Thanks for sharing Bhaskar. We'll support your efforts.

We have submitted a proposal to Climate CoLab contests organised by MIT, USA about use of Diatom Algae to reduce energy consumption for sewage treatment and reuse of water.

Proposal for  Energy-Water Nexus contest
Nualgi - Diatom Algae- Oxygen
Our entry is available at -

There is a popular choice award for proposals with highest number of votes. Anyone can register on Climate CoLab site and vote. 

It will be very helpful if all those interested in Algae vote for us, we require 8 votes to take the lead.

Dave....Sorry for the Phaeodac typo; (80+% lipids....should read 40+% with a 80+ R-Value).

Mahalo Palani,

I'll follow up.

Aloha Dave!

Try check-out fusiform Phaeodactylum tricornutum.....I call it "fatty-fusiform".....

Microalgae as fuel feedstock is definitely on the frontburner, but I still look at high lipid microalgae as feed for verts and inverts.

And yeah, when I started reading about CO2 from powerplants being used to boost algae production for biofuel feedstock, I started wondering what kind of lipids were being produced, and if we could produce high quality feed material in conjunction with the fossil fuels we burn to produce over 90% of the electricity in Hawaii.

I thought of Hawaiian Electric's Kahe Point powerplant, with the CO2 going up its stacks, lots of sunshine on the Leeward Coast.

The next ideation was what would an oyster fed such a fatty diet would taste like...

interested in biotechnology and genetic engineering tests with algae to produce a better strain of algae for production of biofuels.
