Algae biofuels to transportation needs

2018. May 24.

ExxonMobil and Synthetic Genomics, Inc. (SGI) are working toward the technical ability to produce 10,000 barrels of algae biofuels a day by 2025. While this research target is still years away, and it will take well over 10,000 barrels to fuel the world’s transportation needs, ongoing work in the field and lab is bringing researchers closer to scaling up algae biofuels production in a meaningful way reported by Exxon Mobil.

Our cooperation partners

Galamb József Agricultural Trade School

Zoltán Horváth, Headmaster

Agricultural technicians, gardeners, ornamental plant gardeners and agricultural technician students are educated in the educational garden of the school. Our school represents the practice-oriented method of agricultural education. It is important for us to ensure that our students can experience the modern development trends of agriculture in addition to the academic education. The growth of precision farming offers innovative solutions for farmers (not yet being part of the education), experience of which offers unique advantages for our students.

Basilicus has been running its bio-viticultural business on a 7,8 hectare-large land since 2011. We have already been using algae infusion here earlier, sometimes sprinkling it over the whole area. We think the algae infusion could improve the grape’s self-protection.
