From Coal-fired CO2: The Digest’s Multi-Slide Guide to capturing flue gas via microalgae

A recent DOE project with MicroBio Engineering had the primary objective of a detailed techno-economic and life cycle assessment for a coal-fired power plant with two microalgae CO2 utilization and mitigation options. First, biogas production to replace coal for maximum CO2 mitigation, and second, commodity animal feeds production for maximum economic benefit.

A secondary objective was to demonstrate algae based production using flue gas with native algae and conversion to biogas; and to evaluate suitability as animal feed.

Tryg Lundquist, CTO of MBE gave this illuminating overview of the project at the recent DOE workshop on algae-based carbon capture technologies.
