Snell Works on Seaweed Ulva for CO2 Sequestration

February 7th, 2009 | No Comments | Posted in Algae-Fuel-Research

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

Snell, a Woolwich resident, is studying the rate at which sea lettuce ulva lactuca can biologically gobble up carbon dioxide

The academic project began early in his junior year at Wiscasset High and continued through the summer at the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in Boothbay Harbor, before Snell returned to the research during his senior year.

“I’ve been working on this project for two years,” he told The Times Record on Thursday.

Snell wants to carry his project through college — he’s been offered healthy scholarship packages to attend the University of Maine and Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts. His ultimate goal is to develop a state-of-the-art photobioreactor with what he learns.

That is, he wants to design an organic system that limits the carbon dioxide emissions of polluting factories.

“I hope to be able to use the research to create a photobioreactor for industrial facilities,” explained Snell. “The emissions could be bubbled up through the water and sea lettuce, which would remove the carbon dioxide.”
