Dry Process Algae Tech Info

DPA Technical Information:

The combustion heat of the current algae sample was measured using calorimeter.  Algae were burned inside the chamber with the constant volume, which was the same situation as burned inside the jet engine.  In order to fully burn algae, 25 bar of pure oxygen (99.99%) was pressured in the chamber.  The combustion heat of the current algae sample was 25.21 kJ/g, which is lower than that (~40 kJ/g) of the current Jet 8 fuel. (wikipedia.org) The following is our raw experiment to compare the combustion heat for standard Benzoic acid and the Algae sample.
