CARS – Carbon Algae Recycling System, using Algae
You are at: Oilgae Blog.
Here’s another article on CARS. Nothing much new here, but interesting all the same:
“Welcome CARS, the humorous abbreviation for a Carbon Algae Recycling System, being developed by the Alberta Research Council and nine other research corporations, which kills all those birds with one stone. (sorry, inappropriate metaphor) It reminds us of the dénouement of the Cat in the Hat, were he picks everything up and makes everything right.
The exhaust CO2 is diverted from the exhaust gases and pumped into the tailing ponds, where micro-algae eat it all up, along with the heavy metals and leftover hydrocarbons. Result? algae that are harvested and turned into biofuels.
