Transcript of Biodiesel from algae

Is it easy to make biodiesel from Algae? How much does it cost?
To make Bio diesel from algae you filter algae from water. then you press the algae , approximetly 70% of algae oil is obtained that way.During photosynthesis, algae oil and other photosynthetic organisms capture carbon dioxide and sunlight and convert it into oxygen and biomass. 6H2O + 6CO2 ----------> C6H12O6+ 6O2

six molecules of water plus six molecules of carbon dioxide produce one molecule of sugar plus six molecules of oxygen
Sunlight plus water plus algae plus c02 yeilds more algae and oxygen
The bio diesel is very good for the environment, and although it dosn't eliminate all co2 it eliminates the introduction of new co2.although various algae species typically cost between 5–10 dollars per kilogram, several companies and goverment agencies are trying so the price for algae will be lower. But very soon, and in some cases in other countries and parts of the u.s., Algae biodiesel will be lower in price than deisel Biodiesel is meant to be used in standard diesel engines it is recommended to change the fuel filters on engines and heaters shortly after first switching to a biodiesel blend. I learned that it isnt a very difficult process to make the fuel. also, i think this is a very smart idea on how to be more green. and every little thing we do to save more energy and make less harmful gases into the air will pay off in the long run. Left:
C = 6
H = 12
O =18

C = 6
H = 12
O = 18 Products: C6H12O6+ 6O2
Reactants:6H2O + 6CO2 Catalyst- makes a reaction go faster
no, no there is not a catalyst in this reaction Biodiesel from Algae ( Photosynthesis)
