By Chemical Engineering |

Last month, BP Corp. (London; www.bp.com) signed a joint-development agreement with Martek Biosciences Corp. (Columbia, Md.; www.martek.com) to work on the production of microbial oils for biofuels applications. The two companies aim to establish proof of concept for large-scale, cost-effective production of microbial biodiesel. The concept is to utilize microorganisms to ferment sugars into lipids, which will then be processed into liquid fuels. BP is contributing $10 million to the initial phase of the collaboration.www.bp.com www.martek.com   Click here for a full pdf version of the Chementator Section
