The flexibility of hydrogen makes it a probable candidate for a common gasoline, and Congress has lately voted to extend learn spending during this zone. This convention will study organismal ways (bacteria, eco-friendly algae, and cyanobacteria), bioreactor engineering and massive scale platforms, institutional matters akin to tradition creditors, databases, and overseas cooperation, marine-based platforms, and commercialization. The editor, Oskar Zaborsky, is the editor of the Plenum sequence, Marine Biotechnology.

NKBG042902. sive protein encoded by the chromosome is expressed under fresh water conditions in Synechococcus sp. NKBG042902. This protein depresses expression of RepA protein resulting in a low copy number of pSY 10. This is a novel plasmid replication mechanism involving chromosome control (Figure 2). The function of this plasmid remains unclear.

S. 08/kWh), such a H 2 output is worth about $2, $8, and $22/mZ/year, respectively, to the consumer. Biohydrogen would compete more closely with electricity. A producer cost goal of about $15/GJ, or some $11/m2/year, would thus appear reasonable, allowing for H 2 distribution and some taxes. ) of 25%, this would permit $36/m 2 of capital investment. Even if higher value H 2 or lower capital charges were allowed, total system costs, including photobioreactors, could not be above $50/m 2. " However, future (year 2020) costs for photovoltaic-electrolyzer H 2, an already well-advanced technology, are projected optimistically at about $20/GJ (Block and Melody, 1992).
