Abstract :

The growing energy demand across the globe has instigated us to synthesize bio-fuel from algae, a renewable resource. Algae Botryococcus braunii when subjected to anaerobic digestion and broken down by enzymes liberate methane and CO2. The CO2 obtained is cultivated in open ponds and are passed through a fluidised bed chamber after pre-treatment. The chamber contains enzymes which breakdown the algal colloid into fatty acids. These fatty acids on decomposition release CO2 that is internally cycled for algal cultivation and the methane can be profitably and cleanly extracted. This methane can be used as a fuel in vehicles (CNG) and also in various industrial and domestic fields, providing a low-cost solution to the global energy crisis.
