ABSTRACT
The article reports on the construction by Royal Dutch Shell Plc and HR Biopetroleum of a pilot facility in Hawaii to grow marine algae and produce vegetable oil for conversion into biofuel. Algae grow rapidly, are rich in vegetable oil and can be cultivated in ponds of seawater. The companies have formed a joint venture called Cellana. The site is leased from the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority (NELHA) and is located near to existing commercial algae enterprises. It will grow only non-modified marine microalgae species in open-air ponds using proprietary technology.
