Greencell Technologies – The Issues

Press release from: GreenCell Technologies Ltd

For years scientists have been experimenting with bacteria in an effort to solve the dual problems of global warming and renewable energy, a result of the use of fossil fuels, and the need to develop alternative fuel supplies.

Algae in their many forms already produce up to 80% of the world’s oxygen through the process of sequestration of CO2 from the atmosphere. This is an established and well-known part of the eco-system. Concurrently, the biofuel community has always had the expectation that biofuels would one day play a significant role in our energy future. There has been much scientific research that leads in this direction. The major problems encountered, ones not hitherto overcome, are: to exploit the known science, vast tracts of land or sea have had to be employed; and the algae employed have typically simply died before the end of the process.

In summary, the processes employed to date have been wasteful in both resources and space, and inefficient.

GreenCell has invented and patented a process that overcomes these problems: the process is compact, efficient and measurable.

Greencell Technologies – The Science. Between 1978 and 1996, the US Department of Energy funded research into technologies that could have significant impacts on the consumption of fossil fuels. The focus of this research became the Aquatic Species Program, which investigated renewable fuel production (bio-diesel) from high-oil algae species, fed by the waste CO2 from coal-fired power plants. Researchers whittled down over 3,000 strains of micro-organisms into the most productive 300, and constructed 1000 sq. meter test ponds outside of Roswell, NM.

The ponds were set up as sort of algae ‘race-tracks’, where algae were circulated around shallow, oval-shaped ponds as carbon dioxide bubbled through the mixture. Results were successful and in some ways encouraging, but the program was abandoned after almost two decades, as a result of budget constraints and a preference for allocating resources to researching ethanol as a substitute for low cost fossil fuels.

GreenCell develops the GNUL Bio Processor
GreenCell Research Pty Ltd has now taken these ideas to the next level. Utilizing the intellectual property of Ian Wright, GreenCell Research Pty Ltd constructed a number of bio-processors at Yatala, Queensland to prove the concept. Scientists from the Atmospheric Research Facility at CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency, provided advice on algae selection. To minimize the use of land and water resources, a proprietary bio-processor was created to grow the algae. Invoplas Pty Ltd, a plastics R & D company, built the processors.

The final bio-processor has been named the GNUL - “lung” in reverse - breathing in CO2 and breathing out O2.

About the GNUL

The World now realises what the Earth has been trying to say for some time…. It is running out of breath and now is the time to act, before it is too late. The GreenCell GNUL bio-processor - which can be built into the infrastructure that creates our greenhouse gases - turns our worst problem into our greatest asset. The GNUL replicates lungs that breathe in CO2 and other polluting elements and breathes out sweet oxygen, cleans water for re-use and turns bio-waste into useful by-products. It’s what nature has been doing since life on earth began. A low-energy natural process with measurable results. Now we can all be part of a solution, instead of the problem.

GreenCellTechnologies: The Garnaut Climate Change Review - Diabolical Problem
A diabolical problem and a saving grace.Climate change is a diabolical policy problem. It is harder than any other issue of high importance that has come before our polity in living memory. Climate change presents a new kind of challenge. It is uncertain in its form and extent, rather than drawn in clear lines. It is insidious rather than (as yet) directly confrontational. It is long term rather than immediate,
GreenCellTechnologies: The Garnaut Climate Change Review - Intro
The weight of scientific evidence tells us that Australians are facing risks of damaging climate change. The risk can be substantially reduced by strong, effective and early action by all major economies. Australia will need to play its full proportionate part in global action. As one of the developed countries, its full part will be relatively large, and involve major early changes to established economic structure. The work of the
