DOE to Provide Funding for Algal Fuels


The Energy Department will provide $3.5 million to a Hawaii firm to use algae to produce oil.

Kailua-Kona-based Cellana produces oil feedstock from algae that can be refined to create renewable diesel, jet fuel or gasoline. Last year the firm announced a multi-year agreement to sell its product to Neste Oil, which distributes renewable diesel.

Cellana also uses the technology to produce animal feed and omega-3 nutritional supplements.

Some environmental groups have taken issue with another company’s use of sugarcane feedstock and genetically modified algae in a different process, as Georgina Gustin reported on

The race toward finding cost-competitive biofuels from algae may have resulted in cyberattacks on a Florida firm, The Washington Post reported.

    Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
