PROJECT: Algae for Carbon Sequestration

STATUS: Research Stage

PROJECT CHAMPION: Dan Torres

PROJECT SUMMARY:

Since the oil crisis of the 1970s, research conducted shows algae as a source of biofuel, wastewater treatment, carbon sequestration, nutrients and pharmaceuticals.

 

As biofuel. In the United States, algae biofuels have been produced but only at the research level. Commercial production need to undergo several steps with each stop entailing corresponding costs:

1.         algae production;

2.         maintaining “pure” cultures;

3.         harvesting;

4.         drying; (algae = 90+% water);

5.         breaking the cellulose wall;

6.         purifying the algae oil (separating the oils from other substances);

7.         transforming algae oil to biodiesel (esterification).

 

As wastewater treatment. Effluents from sewage treatment plants which treat organic waste are high in nitrogen and phosphorus. Both nutrients are known to cause algal blooms when released directly into natural waterways. Adding an algae scrubber into the process can absorb the nitrogen and phosphorus before the treated water is released.

 

For carbon sequestration. Photosynthesis by oceanic algae is one of the major sources of oxygen for the Earth. Carbon dioxide processed by algae releases oxygen to the atmosphere while retaining carbon as part of the cellular structure. Although planktonic algae are microscopic, in large numbers especially during plankton blooms, these algae can sequester considerable amounts of carbon.

PROJECT: Dayot Rotary Engine

STATUS: For Prototyping

PROJECT CHAMPION: Engr. Ricky Dayot

PROJECT SUMMARY:

In the 1980s, Rudy Dayot was challenged with the concept of building an engine wth less friction, less moving parts and less weight ad developed the DAYOT ROTARY ENGINE.


The Rotary Engine has much lesser moving parts compared with piston engines and has the capability of producing high rotational engine speed and a high power-to-weight ratio.  It works best filled in with gaseous phase fuel,  has no valve, no connecting rods, and no crankshaft.  Unlike the piston engine which produces power at 360 degres rotation.  Dayot's rotary engine produces power at a 180 degrees rotation with no opposing  running mate, powering simultanerously which results to more engine power.


The expanding gas is also dissipated immediately and thus prevents the engine from overheating due to hydrogen's high heat value.
