Do you know that oil derived from algae is an exciting renewable fuel possibility? – see Oilgae for more.
Algae-based Oxygen Machine
Came across an interesting blog post on the Chlorophyll Collective (CC)…Just in case you are wondering what on earth CC could be, the post provides the answer:
“How do you turn 6,008.6 million metric tons of CO2 into something essential for human existence?
From the experts at the Chlorophyll Collective, the answer is simple: Take a bunch of algae, submerge it in water, blast it with carbon dioxide and sunlight, and get our essential OXYGEN as a waste(?!) product….
In fact, did you know OVER 70% of the oxygen in the atmosphere is not produced by trees, but by algae? This means our very lives depend on algae for existence!
So the folks at CC are trying to make machines that eat the CO2 and produce O2 – in other words, algae-based oxygen machines!
