Support Algae Fuel Development in Israel

Target: UK Energy Research Center

Goal: Support the development of algae fuel as an energy alternative in the area surrounding Tel Aviv

Currently, scientists in Israel are working on a way to make algae into a clean and cost effective alternative fuel source. While a good deal of research still needs to be conducted on the types of algae used and the process in which it is broken down, some researchers in the area believe they may be on the right track towards making a clean and promising alternative energy source.

While scientists have known about the benefits of algae fuel for decades, no major company has yet been successful in making the energy alternative financially effective. However, deserts surrounding Tel Aviv, Israel appear to be just the environment necessary for the development of such a process, as the algae does not have to compete for food sources, water, or potent land as do other energy resources like wood and corn.

Algae fuel makes for a good alternative fuel source for many reasons, including the limited impact of development on the environment, and the ease and lack of resources necessary to grow the crop. The growth of the algae also uses only brackish water, which is undesirable and not useful for humans and animals.

By teaming with the UK Energy Research Center, local groups in Israel would be able to find a new stream of funding for the project while British researchers would be able to have a hand in the development of this new energy alternative. Sign this petition and ask the UK Energy Research Center to support the development of algae fuel as an alternative energy source in Israel.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear UK nergy Research Center,

Research is currently underway in Israel to find a sustainable and cost effective method of farming algae to create a cleaner and more stable energy alternative. With your help, scientists in the area would be able to propel their research forward and continue testing different types of algae in the hopes of discovering which would be the most effective as a means of production in the arid region. Workers from groups such as Seambiotics and Univerve feel confident that they are on the right path, but need a boost in funding to continue their research.

That is why we write you today to ask you to support current research occurring in and around the Tel Aviv area in relation to the development of algae as a possible alternative energy source. This would allow scientists and researchers in the area the extra help they need to complete their project, while also allowing you a role in the development of such an important and sustainable alternative energy resource.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This will revolutionize the world and end the tyranny of big oil along with it’s financial, social and environmental destruction to the planet. Really time to end the divine right of polluters, corrupters and thieves.

  2. The project in Jordan is much more interesting, also producing freshwater for argiculture. Norwegian Bellona is a partner.
