Spanish Firm Claims to have made Oil from Marine Plants

A Spanish company has claimed to have developed an innovative new method of breeding plankton and turning the marine plants into oil.
The new development could mean a potentially inexhaustible source of clean fuel
The dark green coloured crude oil has not been tested on vehicles yet and the Spanish company, Bio Fuel Systems, says vehicle tests are still some time away.
After three years of research by scientists and engineers connected with the University of Alicante, Bio Fuel Systems was formed this year in eastern Spain. It is a wholly Spanish firm.
Their press dossier claims: "Bio Fuel Systems has developed a process that converts energy, based on three elements: solar energy, photosynthesis and an electromagnetic field.
"That process us allows us to obtain bio petroleum, equivalent to that of fossil origin."
Phytoplankton, like other plants, absorb carbon dioxide as they grow. Scientists have examined the possibility of stimulating growth of the single cell plants as a means of reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.
CO2, liberated by burning fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas, is widely held responsible for global warming.
Bio Fuel Systems said its new fuel would reduce CO2, was free of other contaminants like sulphur dioxide and would be cheaper than fossil oil is now.
"Our system of bioconversion is about 400 times more productive than any other plant-based system producing oil or ethanol," the press dossier said, referring to currently available biofuels made from plants like maize or oilseeds.
Bio Fuel Systems is continuing to work with scientists at the University of Alicante on the project. It has drawn up industrial plans to make the fuel and says it will be able to start continuous production in 14 to 18 months.
