BioFuel System BFS Blue Petroleum One: microalgae biofuel on RTL-TVi

This week, RTL-TVi broadcast an issue of “Tout explicable” devoted to algae and in particular to microalgae biofuel with a practical application to the BFS Alicante plant

We saw the Alicante plant there with some interesting information including the presence of a "secret catalyst" in the growth reactors, small white beads that look a lot like ... nitrate ...

CO2 recovery from a nearby plant ... the price of a blue petrol barrel is confirmed at $ 40 !! Three times less than the current price of fossil oil!

We see a burner with a beautiful flame… yellow…

We learn that the conversion into “blue oil” is done, in fact, as in nature under temperature and pressure in a conversion reactor (and therefore not by trans-esterification or other oil extraction…).

Subsequent refining is still necessary for engine use ...
