    O'Brien hopes to harv pounds of sugar kelp, and 8, pounds of ribbon kelp every year, but he gave those estimates "with a great deal of uncertainty," he wrote in an email. development aspects of ocean farming. This report presents the status of ocean energy farm developments and evaluates their potential. While ocean energy farms are now in the early stages of development and much research remains to be done, the prospects are encouraging. This book contains descriptive and analytic.

    Ocean Approved is the very first company to commercially raise kelp in open water farms in the United States. Paul Dobbins came on board as a partner in the company in Ocean Approved now holds permits from the Maine Department of Marine Resources for four open water kelp farms in Maine. Flannery cites Ocean Foresters research that indicates kelp farms on 9% of the world ocean could stabilise the climate. But my view is that as investment scales up with this goal in mind, the efficiencies of micro-algae over seaweed will become obvious and will shift the focus to the model of NASA’s Offshore Membrane Enclosures for Growing /5.

      The federal government seems to think the idea of kelp farming is phenomenal, too. This past autumn, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Macroalgae Research Inspiring Novel Energy Resources, or MARINER, program awarded 18 grants to researchers from coast to coast, hoping to jump-start America’s efforts to expand and commercialize the kinds of test farms that Yarish saw thriving in Long Author: Kim Kavin. Web exclusive posted Oct. 31, at a.m. CST The brown seaweed Laminaria hyperborean, more commonly referred to as kelp, could be farmed off the coast of Scotland as biomass for the production of methane and ethanol, according to the Scottish Association for Marine Science in a report that was published for The Crown Estate, the property-holding organization for the British monarchy.

Giant kelp is one of the fastest growing sources of biomass, and the open ocean surface water is an immense, untapped region for growing kelp. Ocean Food and Energy Farms Capture sunlight, turn it into fuel: it sounds like a futuristic formula.

Yet one of the pioneering efforts in kelp cultivation, the Ocean Food and Energy Farm project (OFEF), began in with an infusion of US Navy : Holly Jean Buck. Marine BioEnergy’s new kelp elevator grows seaweed on a long tube, and if tests go well, they hope to start farming in the open ocean between Hawaii and California.

International research labs are using seaweed to make biofuel, but little progress has been made in the U.S.

Now scientists in California are developing a. And rather than building sprawling ocean factories, we need create decentralized networks of small-scale food and energy farms growing food, generating power, and creating jobs for local communities.

Kelp has a high rate of growth and its decay is quite efficient in yielding methane, as well as sugars that can be converted to ethanol. It has been proposed that large open-ocean kelp farms could serve as a source of renewable : Phaeophyceae.

John Forster, Ricardo Radulovich, in Seaweed Sustainability, Development of cost-efficient farm systems. Seaweed farming is already quite cost efficient. The average cost of production of L. japonica in China, for example, is about USD –/t dry weight (Chen, personal communication), while costs reported by the FAO for carrageenan seaweed farming range from an improbable low of.

Get ready for kelp ice cream, oysters, seaweed linguini. Blue Revolution’s answer centers on a percent renewable energy source called ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC, pronounced oh-tek).

Simply explained, the process uses heat from the ocean’s warm surface water to vaporize a refrigerant like ammonia. This vapor spins a turbine, driving a generator to produce electricity. In the s, during the oil embargo, the U.S.

Navy began investigating the possibility of farming kelp in the open ocean, pumping deep ocean water filled with nutrients to kelp anchored near the Author: Adele Peters. Large scale open ocean forestry would require engineered substrate and added nutrients.

Biofuel. As ofthe Wrigley Institute of Environmental Studies was testing farming of kelp near Catalina Island for conversion to a biofuel by thermochemical liquefaction. Food. Small-scale cultivation uses kelp as a replacement for kale.In a study conducted for the Marine Biomass Program, energy usage for cultivation and harvesting for aacre open-ocean kelp farm was reported to have fuel requirements for pumping deep water nutrients to the ocean surface in the range of MMBtu/ wet metric ton seaweed for a yield of 10 metric ton/acre/year (mid-range analyzed).Ocean kelp farms are hardly in danger of being wiped out by drought.

And the water-based crop does not have to compete for the rapidly diminishing acreage now used for corn and : Sara Terry.
