Hi i am new to this but hey i am here and iam GREEN
any way so i work at a polyolefin company in the middle east and we are producing alot of CO2 and we want to be more green and we are interested in Ethanol

so after some goggling i found out Algae and there hunger for CO2 and how the produce Ethanol (ALGENOL)

but how can i represent this to our Development teem any good basic presentation any one can give me some numbers for production of Ethanol and the consumption of CO2

and also are we using Algae or Cyanobacteria for this Ethanol production and is it like one genus or we are mixing them together in the photobioreactor

cuze from my under standing algae don’t have alot of metabolic activity when it comes to fermentation like yeast do or am i wrong

thank you
