Development of an Algae-Based System for CO2 Mitigation from Coal-Fired Power Plants

Grants and Contracts Details


This project seeks to investigate and demonstrate the potential of using waste C02 and heat from a coalfired power plant to cultivate algae, which could then be processed into value added products. While the mitigation of C02 emissions from coal-fired power plants forms the main focus of the project, in order to determine the most economically favorable strategy the production of biofuels or bioproducts from the algae will also be investigated.
