Algae as a Tool in Capturing Value from Waste

Description:The world’s algae population has a voracious appetite for consuming carbon dioxide, and through its photosynthetic process is said to be responsible for producing roughly onehalf of the oxygen in the atmosphere. Algae has the capacity to double its biomass in 24 hours or less; grow in fresh, saline, brackish or wastewaters; and not compete with traditional food crops for resources. Additionally, algae has the potential to be used in wastewater remediation, biofuel production and the development of value-added products.
