Green Crude Production

Sapphire Energy announced that they had successfully produced 91 octane gasoline with ATSM certification following a process that began with algae as it's underlying source material. This is an amazing development for those who are tracking the development of algae as a biofuel since it essentially means a proof of concept exists that takes us all the way from the lab to the gas pump where we need it to be.

The infrastructure to support mass production of this process is "modular, transportable and fueled by sunlight--not constrained by land, crops or other natural resources," according to Sapphire.

The article goes on to reference a phrase growing in usage, "Green Crude Production."
