Michigan State University Partners with ExxonMobil to Advance Biofuel Research

Michigan State University announced new $1 million relationship with ExxonMobil to expand research designed to progress the fundamental science required to advance algae-based fuels. The key to bioenergy is the efficiency of photosynthesis, the process algae use to capture solar energy and the first step in converting the energy from the sun into a liquid fuel. Past research has shown that algae photosynthesis can be highly efficient under optimal conditions in the laboratory. Under realistic growth conditions however, this efficiency drops. There is a need to improve photosynthesis under simulated production environments. The project will take advantage of these natural variations as well as a suite of new technologies developed by the Kramer lab at PRL that allow rapid, high-throughput testing of photosynthetic efficiency of many algal lines under simulated growth conditions. One of these technologies, developed through a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (Energy, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy program) is a matrix of specialized chambers, called the environmental PhotoBioReactor, that allow algae to be studied in detail under simulated production environments. The second Kramer lab technology, developed with support from the Photosynthetic Systems and Physical Biosciences programs at the DOE (Basic Energy Sciences program), is called PhotosynQ and is a network of portable sensors called MultispeQ that are being used by many researchers around the world to probe photosynthesis. These sensors allow the Kramer lab to measure the photosynthetic processes in many algal cultures at the same time under different conditions to learn why some strains are more efficient than others.

Michigan State University and PHYCO2 Enters Collaborative Research Agreement for Cleaner Power

Michigan State University and PHYCO2 have entered into a partnership to develop algae technologies produced from PHYCO2's revolutionary and patented concept that promotes algae growth and sequesters, or captures, carbon dioxide from power plant emissions. The collaboration is a direct response to the White House and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's call documented in the Clean Power Plan. Under the collaborative research agreement, MSU and PHYCO2 - an algae growth and carbon dioxide sequestration company based in Santa Maria, California - will investigate the performance of PHYCO2's algae growth and carbon dioxide absorption technology, as well as algae-processing technologies. PHYCO2 will be testing its algae photo bioreactor, technology that continuously captures significant amounts of CO2 and grows algae with LED light, at MSU's T.B. Simon Power Plant. MSU and PHYCO2 expect to be able to absorb up to 80% of captured CO2 emissions for the production of algae. MSU will be testing the growth of several algae strains and post processing of the algae that is grown. The project's goals are to cost-effectively grow algae while significantly absorbing CO2 for sequestration from the gas emissions at the power plant. The algae can then be sold into current markets for biofuels, bioplastics and other applications. Through the sequestration of the greenhouse gas emissions, this technology has the potential to produce organically pure and biologically consistent algae. The PHYCO2 algae photobioreactor may also be able to treat wastewater from urban sources and produce cleaner water as a by-product.
