    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...

    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 ...

  • Sustainable biofuel from waste peaches - Caye Drapcho

    My name is Dr. Caye Drapcho and I am an associate professor of Biosystems Engineering at Clemson University. I'm conducting research on different ways that we can produce sustainable biofuels to help our nation get off of it's fossil fuel addiction. This line of research was brought to us by the Peach Council in South Carolina. They were very forward thinking in their thought that they are wasting about ten percent of their fresh fruit harvest every year simply because it's not perfect. There are still a lot of sugars available in those waste, cull peaches that we can ferment into biofuel. Our project looks at those waste peaches and converts them into hydrogen gas, which can then be a sustainable biofuel for the future.

    In Europe, transport accounts for 25% of greenhouse gas emissions and nearly 97% of all energy used in transport comes from fossil fuels. This is unsustainable. Europe needs a more sustainable energy future. In 2009, the EU passed the Renewable Energy Directive. Europe’s goal was ambitious and sensible: 10% renewable energy in transport by 2020. Thanks to that policy, first-generation biofuels today are a successful and important alternative to fossil fuels in transport. Europe is now home to a well-established industry that makes clean, renewable fuels, produced mainly from European crops. The biofuels industry has invested billions across the EU. Biofuels support 220,000 jobs and provide farmers with additional income. The benefits of biofuels are significant. First-generation biofuel...

A lot of times we want to strike another oil well, we want to have free energy gushing out of the ground and that's really not what our future energy needs are going to be met by; it's going to be multiple, diffuse energy sources that will meet that need. For South Carolina and for an individual peach producer, the impact is going to be substantial. We have estimated for one peach grower it would be about a ten thousand dollar per year savings. If we multiply that by any harvest of any fresh fruit or vegetable, it could have a nationwide impact that would help us move toward energy sustainability.

The use of biofuels reduces Europe’s fossil fuel imports by more than 11 billion Euros a year. The production of biofuels also creates protein-rich feed for European livestock. This reduces protein imports by more than 4.5 billion Euros a year. European biofuels comply with the strictest sustainability criteria in the world. Crops for biofuels are not grown on deforested land, peatlands or in areas with a high biodiversity value. The land used to grow the crops accounts for less than 2% of the agricultural area in Europe. Thanks to sustainable growing practices, biofuels stay true to their objective: to contribute to cleaner transportation in Europe.
