    Our algae facility just went public (here)


    CARLSBAD A ceremony Wednesday morning in the middle of the Pecos Valley marked the beginning of a significant chapter in energy production in New Mexico.

    With the snipping of a ribbon, the Center of Excellence for Hazardous Materials Management moved its Algae Biofuels Project from pilot scale to the commercial demonstration level.

    Located on the grounds of the New Mexico State University Agriculture Science Center south of Artesia, this phase of the project expects to be in full operation by Sept. 1, producing algae that will be harvested and processed into biodiesel fuel.

    The project has the potential to produce 5,000 gallons of oil per acre per year, according to Doug Lynn, executive director of CEHMM.
