That pond scum growing in your bird bath could someday be powering your car. Right now, companies like Signal Hill’s Sustainable Now Technologies (SNT) are developing ever-more efficient ways of converting algae into fuels that are cost competitive with gas and oil.
Wednesday, October 5, CEO Eric Woolery-Grimm, and other members of the team at Sustainable Now Technologies, will detail the evolution of renewable fuel production, and demonstrate their energy conversion machine, which will make it possible for consumers to produce their own algae-based fuel.
Industrial sized algae conversion systems are being developed by startups throughout the country, and especially in places like Texas, Arizona, and even in the San Francisco Bay Area. Several are backed by Silicon Valley venture capitalists and oil companies.
SNT’s approach is develop the technology to enable consumers to create and store their own fuel. Woolery-Grimm will explain with slides and videos how the company does this.
Sponsored by the Long Beach Sierra Club group, the presentation is free and open to the public. The program will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Environmental Services Bureau, 2929 East Willow St., near Temple Ave. in Long Beach.
The Long Beach Group is part of the Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club. The group has more than 2,500 members and serves Cerritos, Hawaiian Gardens, Lakewood, Long Beach, Los Alamitos, Signal Hill and Seal Beach.
