New Alga Discovered In Colorado Will Possibly Extend Biodiesel Production Northwards

New Alga Discovered In Colorado Will Possibly Extend Biodiesel Production Northwards

Researchers have discovered a new type of yellow-green algae — heterococcus sp. DN1 — that could potentially be a good source for biodiesel production and allow biodiesels to be produced much further north than they are now. The new strain was discovered living in the snow fields of the Rocky Mountains. H. sp. DN1 is apparently able to grow at very-low temperatures — near freezing — all the while accumulating large stores of lipids. It actually produces lipids at its highest rate when grown undisturbed in low temperatures and bright light — much like the conditions present in a snow field during the summer
