sustainablog: Growing Algae for Clean, Green Energy

I've made a few postings about development of Algae that can be grown and harvested for their oil content. GreenFuel Technologies is one company developing this kind of technology. In their case they want to colocate their algae tanks with regular power plants, feeding the algae with the CO2 exhaust from the power plants. The algae does an amazing job of soaking up the CO2 from the exhaust, leaving it with 40 percent less CO2 and 86 percent less nitrous oxide.

But, I've never seen a picture of it, and we know a picture is worth a thousand words. Look here: Growing Algae for Clean, Green Energy
