General Information
Title Algae Reactors for Biofuel
Type Case-study
Description An Israeli company has been developing algae as a source of fuel. Israel's Seambiotic is employing algae as a biofuel that could also reduce pollution from coal power plants. Executives said the method channels carbon dioxide emissions from coal-burning smokestacks through pools of skeletonema algae, which in turn converts to fuel. The concept has been tested in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon, which contains a coal-burning power plant.
