Why use algae for ethanol?
- You can press the oil from specific strains of algae to make bio diesel, and then use the left over biomass for ethanol…two transportation fuel products in one.
- Algae can be grown on non-arable land not taking away from the productive farmland.
- Algae require fewer inputs than traditional sources.
- The EROI - Energy Returned On Investment, is much higher than Energy Invested or required to produce algae ethanol.
- Making algae ethanol does not require a very complicated equipment or machinery to set it up.
- Algae ethanol plant does not use food crops.
- The alga to ethanol process produces many valuable by-products.
- A by-product of the fermentation process is CO2…a valuable component needed in maximizing algae production.
This book is written for entrepreneurs and small business owners, by an entrepreneur and small business owner. I've tried to answer the questions I would have, and have had, in my own algae production consulting business. It is written for professionals and forward thinking individuals looking to cash in on the "Algae Revolution."
Other factors to consider:
- No licensing required or needed.
- Grow a valuable product.
- No upper limit on income potential.
- No boss
- Ground floor opportunity to get in on one of the biggest bonanzas in modern history.
The paperback book is over 235 pages and the eBook and supporting bonus material are a whooping 1024 pages. It is the most complete treatment of the subject available anywhere, online or offline.
His books are a bestseller with my audience...
This is another excellent eBook by David Sieg in his algae-as-fuel series, which helps us move in a more sustainable and self-reliant direction, both individually and collectively.
His books are a best-seller with my audience that is looking for ambitious solutions. In this 240-page volume, you will be given the information needed to launch ethanol production from algae or other 'discard' biomass; whether for yourself, or as a small or medium-sized business, including information about local permitting, incentives and obstacles. The remainder of the 1024-page document contains additional supplemental material he has compiled for you to help in this quest."

I was Completely Impressed...
I just recommended your Algae to Ethanol book to a colleague of mine. We are working on an ethanol project together and he is going to order the book.
I just thought I would pass this note along to let you know and to know that I was completely impressed with the ebook (the amount I have read thus far) that is why I recommended it.
It is EXCELLENT source of information!
Thanks for a great book!

About the Author
In 1995, as one of the first Americans to reenter Vietnam after diplomatic relations were restored, David Sieg, while teaching at a university, started making biofuels, then later, algae biodiesel.
With the oil embargo still in effect, Mr. Sieg used his knowledge of biofuels to run the university generators to get lights and air conditioning. Seeing how many people could benefit, he later opened a algae bio fuels consulting business in Vietnam, and Thailand.
In 2008, knowing the secretive nature of the algae biodiesel industry and the lack of real world info, he created making-biodiesel-books.com to share his knowledge. Here you'll find real world applications, "How-To" knowledge you won't find anywhere else.
Other sites might tell you WHAT to do, but none of them tell you HOW to do it. We do.
“I can’t believe somebody didn’t think of this earlier!”
I first have to start out by saying... “I can’t believe somebody didn’t think of this earlier!”. We already know that algae is one of the best sources for oil. Algae produces 100x more oil per acre than soybeans and 10x more oil per acres than the next best thing - jatropha. And now, David Sieg is telling us that you can make ethanol from the leftovers after you extract all the oil?! That’s a lot of energy extracted from just one small acre of algae!
Maybe algae is the answer! And David Sieg is the man with the answers to all your algae questions. He is one of the foremost World experts in algae production. He has written many books on the subject in recent years. Most of his subject matter was about algae for oil production. The oil could be extracted and used to make biodiesel. Now we are learning from this new book, that you can take the byproduct of the oil production process and make another fuel to run our gas guzzling cars.
This is a “must read” book in my opinion.
Algae Ethanol: Here's What You’ll Get
He presents the key questions necessary biofuel production
Algae for Ethanol provides the foundation for understanding the ethanol industry and how algae can provide an energetic feed stock for ethanol producers. Throughout Algae for Ethanol, David Sieg presents the key questions necessary for successful biofuel production. Algae producers for co-products such as foods, feed, nutraceuticals, fertilizers, and medicines also will benefit from the comprehensive references and websites available in Algae for Ethanol.
