Algae Research May Trigger Biofuel BoonSep 18, 2015
Backed by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), IHI NeoG Algae LLC began cultivating a 100-m2 pool of Botryococcus brounii for research and development purposes at its Yokohama, Japan site in 2011. These days, IHI NeoG Algae cultivates a pool with Enomoto algae that’s 15 times larger. The algae demonstrate a phenotype that will further lower the cost for wide-scale production.
