  • Earth 2050 - The Future of Energy - Sustainable fuels from biofuels to artificial photosynthesis

    Earth 2050 - The Future of Energy - Sustainable fuels from biofuels to artificial photosynthesis By the year 2050 the world populations will have grown to 9 billion, we will have vast Megacities, and energy demand will double. The number of cars will grow from 1 billion to 2 billion and our demand for resources will soar. We need new sources of energy and in particular new liquid fuels for transport. Whilst electric cars are on the rise, battery technology falls well short for applications in trucks and airplanes. These technolgies are around today with Brazil already producing 40% of its on transport liquid fuel by making ethanol from sugar cane. But this solution will not meet world demand due to competition for farming land between food and energy crops. To meet world demand 2nd ...

  • Energy 101 | Biofuels

    Biomass is an organic renewable energy source that includes materials such as agriculture and forest residues, energy crops, and algae. Scientists and engineers at the U.S. Department of Energy and its national laboratories are finding new, more efficient ways to convert biomass into biofuels that can take the place of conventional fuels like gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel. This edition of Energy 101 shows how biomass is broken down and refined into sustainable biofuels via biochemical and thermochemical processes.

This talk features: Speaker: Juan David VILLEGAS (EPFL-UNIVALLE-UAO ) Title: Sustainable Biofuels for North Andean Countries Summary: Following the Brazilian example, large scale biofuel programs are being implemented in developing countries of large potential for expansion of their agricultural frontier, such as Colombia and Venezuela. However, this "gold-rush" does not come without its threats. Potential climate change benefits can be overshadowed by other sustainability impacts, especially when expansion reaches critical ecosystems. The SUBA project is born out of these concerns. The potential of agro-industria residues for biofuel p...

  • Energy 101 | Algae-to-Fuels

    As America takes steps to improve our energy security, home-grown fuel sources are more important that ever. One of the fuel sources of the future is algae, small aquatic organisms that convert sunlight into energy and store it in the form of oil. Scientists and engineers at the Energy Department and its national laboratories are researching the best strains of algae and developing the most efficient farming practices. This edition of Energy 101 shows how oil is extracted from algae and refined into sustainable biofuels. For more information on biofuels visit http://www.eere.energy.gov.

    Dr. Kimberly Ogden discusses the potential of algae-based biofuels as an alternative energy source. It turns out algae grows well in the desert, and the biofuel research here in Tucson is cutting edge stuff! Kimberly Ogden is currently teaching and conducting research at the University of Arizona. She received her BS degree from the Univ. of Pennsylvanina and her MS and PhD degrees from the University of Colorado. Prior to joining the UA in the fall of 1992 she was a postdoctoral fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Kim's research focus includes bioreactor design for production of alternative fuels from algae and sweet sorghum and microbiological water quality. She is the engineering technical lead for the National Alliance for Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts. Kimberly Ogden i...

She has run a NSF Research Experiences for Teachers Program for over ten years, where teams of teachers spend 5 to 6 weeks in the summer doing research in the UA laboratories and transfer what they learn directly to the K-12 classroom through relevant lesson plans. She is also the principal investigator for a NSF GK-12 engineering program. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxTucson, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxTucson event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combined to spark deep discussion and connection about sustainability. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
