Rather than capture carbon and somehow store it, a new plan is being explored. Use that carbon to supply algae farms which will then convert the carbon into biofuel.
“The CO2 problem becomes an opportunity” for algae farms, Mettais said. He estimated that one tonne of CO2 could yield net revenues of around $165 if used as the feedstock for an algae farm.
Ecogeek has more.
Green Fuel Technologies is adding another environmental advantage, planning to hook their algae bioreactors up to the smoke stacks from power plants.
Wow. Yet another technology with the potential to change existing industries as well as create new entire new ones.
