Linde and Algenol Biofuels cooperation


The Linde Group and Algenol Biofuels have agreed to cooperate in CO2 and O2 management for biofuel production from algae.
The Linde Group and US company Algenol Biofuels LLC have agreed to collaborate in a joint development project in order to identify the optimum management of carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxygen (O2) for Algenol’s unique algae and photobioreactor technology.

This cooperation will see the companies join forces to develop cost-efficient technologies that capture, store, transport and supply CO2 for Algenol’s proprietary process for the production of third-generation (3G) biofuels out of carbon dioxide (CO2), salt water and algae, as well as remove oxygen from the photobioreactor.

$quot;Producing fuels or chemicals from algae is a promising way of reducing greenhouse gas emissions,$quot; said Dr Aldo Belloni, member of the Executive Board of Linde AG.

$quot;A cost-efficient supply of CO2 is a key factor in this biofuel chain. As a pioneer and leading company in CO2 capture, transport and supply we are delighted to be a key player in major projects in the algae-to-biofuel area.$quot;
