Sapphire Energy and Linde Expand Partnership to Commercialize Technology to Upgrade Algae Biomass into Crude Oil
This growing partnership builds upon Linde's and Sapphire Energy's agreement to develop a low cost CO2 management system for open pond algae-to-fuel production, which was previously announced in May 2011. Linde, the leading merchant CO2 supplier in the U.S., also became the exclusive supplier of CO2 for Sapphire Energy's commercial demonstration, algae-to-energy facility in Columbus, New Mexico. Today, the Green Crude Farm is operating year-round and producing barrels of crude oil daily.
