This is a list of algal fuel producers.

Asia[edit]

Iran[edit]

  • Iran started investigating the production of algae from 2000. Scientific evidence shows that south Iran is the richest area in the world for cultivating algae, because of high humidity, sunny weather, large unused area and salty water.[1] The first version of algae based biofuel will become available for industrial purposes in 2015.[2]
  • Biofuel Research Team (BRTeam) A multi-national research team focused on various aspects of biofuel research initiated extensive research on algal genetic engineering for enhanced biodiesel production in 2010. They hoped to achieve their first genetically-engineered microalgae with enhanced lipid production features in 2015.[3]

Israel[edit]

  • In June 2008, Tel Aviv-based Seambiotic and Seattle-based Inventure Chemical announced a joint venture to use CO2 emissions-fed algae to make ethanol and biodiesel at a biofuel plant in Ashkelon, Israel.[4]

Japan[edit]

  • Euglena Co., Ltd.

Europe[edit]

Bulgaria[edit]

France[edit]

  • Alpha Biotech[6]

Greece[edit]

  • Algae-Farms [7]

Italy[edit]

  • Teregroup in Modena mit einer Kapazität von 3 Mio. Liter, wobei 7g Algen pro Liter erwirtschaftet werden können. Endprodukte sind neben Biodiesel auch Futtermittel und Dünger[8]

The Netherlands[edit]

  • AlgaeLink N.V. - an international producer of algae, algae-based products and algae growing systems
  • LGem B.V. - producing algae systems
  • Tomalgae (Belgium/Netherlands) - producing high value algae concentrate for use as nutritional in early stage larval shrimp and fish hatcheries

Portugal[edit]

  • AlgaFuel, S.A.
  • Buggypower - one of the largest microalgae biomass production units with its own technology based on the use of closed photobioreactores

Spain[edit]

The United Kingdom[edit]

  • British Algoil Ltd [10]
  • Varicon Aqua Solutions Ltd - an international supplier of both fresh and aquatic algae, including the supply of aquaculture-based products and algae cultivation systems

America[edit]

Argentina[edit]

Canada[edit]

Mexico[edit]

  • Recursos Renovables Alternativos[13]

United States[edit]

There are diverse companies developing biofuels from algae:

Oceania[edit]

Australia[edit]

  • Algae.Tec - an advanced biofuels company focused on commercializing technology that produces algae to manufacture sustainable fuels such as biodiesel and green jet fuel
  • Bio Fuels Pty Ltd - a Victor Smorgon Group company; developing algae biofuels technology in Victoria; oil from the algae will go into the BioMax biodiesel produced by Smorgon Fuels

New Zealand[edit]

  • Aquaflow Bionomic Corporation (ABC) - [63] Boeing and Air New Zealand announced a joint project with Aquaflow Bionomic to develop algae. Air New Zealand eventually used jatropha biofuel as Aquaflow was unable to supply any fuel. Aquaflow has not produced a viable method of producing jet fuel from algae.[64]
