Industrial CO2 as a precursor to sustainable biomass: reducing energy consumption and CO2 footprint.

Centre for Process Innovation Ltd

"The project proposes a collaborative research programme to test an innovative, algae based solution for the significant reduction of large scale industrial CO2 emissions. Represented within the project consortium is a large scale energy generators (SembCorp Utilities UK) and the process industries, including cement production (Cemex UK) and lime production (Steetley Dolomite). The project has been recently realigned following trials in which the difficulties associated with growing algae to a sufficiently high concentration and at a sufficient rate have been explored. "
