Van Nuys, CA (PRWEB) July 6, 2009
US Biofuels, Inc a new green company operating out of sunny California is setting to launch major green fuel production with recent gains of twelve greenhouses expanding over eight acres in size located in Sun Valley, CA. Each greenhouse will be constructed and renovated for the purpose of growing algae in a closed system, using the photobioreactor (PBR) process for the production of Biofuel.
In short a PBR is a bioreactor, which includes some kind of light source. Really any clear, translucent container could be called a PBR, but the term is more commonly used to define a closed system, as opposed to an open tank or pond. This system allows more species to be grown at a faster rate, extending the growing season, and if heated it can produce all year round.
US Biofuels looks forward to producing biofuel all year round from these greenhouses and hopes to complete the construction and renovations of the greenhouses by 2010. After which they anticipate to produce over 4 million gallons of biodiesel gas just from these 12 greenhouses alone. In addition to the operating algae plants the company already has it is also currently planning to set up undergoing negotiations with Co-op Greenhouse Inc. to acquire locations in Fresno, CA, Imperial Valley, CA, Ely, NV, and Palmdale, CA to name just a few.
Biodiesel number projections are globally on the rise, Biodiesel Digest is projecting that algal biofuels capacity will reach 1 billion gallons by 2014, 33 percent of which is projected to use a closed system, photobioreactor (PBR) process like US Biofuels. US Biofuels plans to be a part of the billion gallons and projects to be producing 50 million plus gallons of biodiesel per year when all plants are in full operation causing no threat to food prices or livestock, leaving crop and cultivated land untouched, as most of US Biofuels algae farms are in the deserts of southern CA.
US Biofuels is also currently researching new strains of algae to better manufacture more precise mixtures for products such as jet fuel and other special use products. Planning to open a chain of 145 resale locations throughout the nation, US Biofuels looks forward to producing alternative fuels and help America achieve a greener, cleaner environment.
