GSPI Consortium to Construct “Algae-to-Biodiesel” Facilities in Two Countries
SAN DIEGO - Green Star Products, Inc. has announced today that its Consortium of independent companies will begin construction of two demonstration “algae-to-biodiesel” production facilities in the U.S. and abroad.
The GSPI Consortium has collectively many years of experience in the algae development arena.
The Consortium has developed a patent pending proprietary algae processing system and it also has assembled a seven-member research team, which has been in operation at the University of Baja California in Ensenada, Mexico.
Joseph LaStella, President of GSPI, stated, “Algae has been the least studied feedstock source to produce biodiesel, yet holds the greatest solution simultaneously for energy development and global warming mitigation.”
Algae eats CO2, which is the biggest Global Warming Gas, and can produce up to 60 times more oil per acre than traditionally used agricultural oil crops (soybeans, corn, canola, jatropha, etc.).
Mr. LaStella further quotes from a U.S. Department of Energy report, “In a World of ever more limited natural resources, algae technology offers the opportunity to utilize land and water resources that are today unsuited for any other land use needs. For example, microalgae complements rather than competes with other biomass based fuel technologies.” The report goes on to say that microalgae is one of the most efficient CO2/O2 exchangers on the planet and one of the most variable ecological groups of organisms and at the same time they are one of the least studied.
In-Flight Media has produced an impressive current-event documentary type two-minute video clip for GSPI. The video illustrates a solution to both solving the fuel crisis and global warming crisis simultaneously. Over 5-million people will view this video on Continental Airline flights during the months of April and May.
