Project Partners Wanted 2

I received a green light from my company's EHS Manager to explore the feasability of building an algae farm on site after discussing with him the company's need to comply with the reduction of CO2 from our foundry's emissions.  I am eager to get started but not without building a solid team that includes industry professionals and private investers.  The Algae Farm will be located in northern Illinois, USA and will be partnering with the company using several of the company's resources to construct and maintain the CO2 reduction process. If anyone is interested, I can be reached by e-mail at getshook@gmail.com.  All post are welcome.

    Hi Getshook

    Can we have your company's url ?
    What does your company do !
    What is its turnover in terms of $s ?
    How much of CO2 does your foundry emit per day ?
    Include day and night ?
    How far away the farm site from the foundry ?
    Do you need to take the CO2 thru a pipe ?

    I suggest you post as much information of the proposed project, so that the prospective employees, investors, partners know enough about your company as well as the project.
    It makes life easy for them as well as you.

    I am based in India and cant be of much help.
    But am interested in knowing about small and large
    algae to sequester CO2 projects.

    Just so I am clear with my intentions, my sole interest in working with the company, (the foundry I already work for), is to create a profitable working algae farming model that can be reproduced elsewhere in similiar industries. To make this happen there would be a working relationship between the Foundry and the Algae Farm but both would remain independant entities. The Foundry emits about 60K tons of CO2 annually. The plan is to plumb the CO2 directly into the algae farm ponds which would be constructed upon the Foundry land or directly across the street. I am interested in other working models that already use industrial generated greenhouse gasses. I am also interested in best practices for harvesting algae oil to reduce costs. I hope this helps anyone following my blog.
