Presentation Topic: “Microalgae Production and Conversion into Renewable Fuel” by Dr. Jim Manganaro.
Manganaro has spent over 30 years in FMC’s Process R & D Group, a producer of many chemicals and he consults primarily in process and product development, mathematical simulation and micro-reactor technology.
For the past five years he has worked with the Department of Chemical Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology in the area of biofuels.
His background includes Assistant Professor at Manhattan College and research in General Electric’s fuel cell program. Jim has a Bs and Ms from MIT and a Ph.D from RPI and is a PE in New Jersey.
Aspects of the current energy picture and biofuels will be discussed. Particular emphasis will be on the process and economics for converting algae into a liquid fuel which shows the importance of by-products. The base case is for a demo at 1000 barrels per day of hydrogenated algae oil requiring about six acres of algae ponds
