While the alga has long been considered a potential source of biofuel, and several companies have released algae-based fuel at the research level, their fuel is projected to be more expensive. Our technology uses clusters of energy potential of algae to effectively and includes a number of methods to reduce the cost of producing algae and fuel.
We simplified the production of crude oil from algae by combining several steps into one continuous process. The most important cost-saving step is that the process works with wet algae. Most current processes require the algae to be dried — a process that takes a lot of energy and is expensive. The new process works with algae slurry that contains as much as 100 to 120 percent water.
New Technology “cluster” also eliminates another step required in today’s most common algae-processing method: the need for complex processing with solvents like hexane to extract the energy-rich oils from the rest of the algae. Instead, the Technology “cluster” works with the whole algae, subjecting it to degradation by means of “simbulation”, i.e. breakdown of molecules with ionization and produce stable molecular clusters of hydrocarbon fuel “Carbionic.”
WHAT IT NEEDS TO GROW
HOW PRODUCTIVE ALGAE CAN BE
The energy history of humanity is one of using ever greater concentrated sources of energy found in nature. Each form of concentrated energy we master has allowed us to access the next with considerations of economy, preferably a combination of the use of all resources.
New Fuel product “Carbionic” is obtained by special processing of a mixture of carbon-containing materials such as crude oil, oil sludge, biomass, algae, coal, peat, ethanol solutions, any oils and oleaginous plants, edible wastes.
The process of obtaining stable liquid hydrocarbon cluster fuel “Carbionic” by means of “simbulation” includes mixing the ground solid carbon-containing components with an aqueous organic solution, adding pre-dosed oil and other hydrocarbons, homogenization and “simbulation” breakdown of molecules with ionization in order to create unipolar molecular bonds of hydrocarbon clusters, which results in stable liquid hydrocarbon cluster fuel.
