Microalgae Sequester Potentially Harmful Emissions of Co2 and other Greenhouse Gasses

Microalgae naturally recycle CO2 from the atmosphere; however to support the rapid growth needs of an algae farm, more concentrated amounts of CO2 are necessary. The solution: convert CO2 emitted from industrial sources, such as power generators, power plants, cement plants, and ethanol factories, that would have otherwise been a source of environmental pollution. Thus, a potential source of global warming is converted to a source of clean burning feedstock for biofuels and other renewable products.
In addition, most other methods used for CO2 mitigation merely sequester CO2, that is, they simply store the CO2 and do not convert it into useful products or energy, making microalgae one of the most economic ways to combat climate change.
