RIT, Synergy Biogas partner in algae biofuels pilot job

Plantations International Agarwood Gaharu News < div readability =" 8" > Rochester Institute of Innovation and Harmony Biogas are checking out the environmental benefits of microalgae to tidy farming wastewater and also make biofuels. Jeff Lodge, associate lecturer in RIT's Thomas Gosnell School of Life Sciences, is running a three-month aviator program at Synergy Biogas, a modern anaerobic digester located on Harmony Farms in Covington, New york city, to expand microalgae on absorbed biomass. Microalgae will certainly take in pollutants in wastewater and create an algal biomass that Lodge will utilize as a feedstock for sustainable power. Lodge will expand the [...]

MSU, PHYCO2 partner in algae development, CO2 absorption

Plantations International News Michigan State University and PHYCO2 have entered into a partnership to develop algae technologies produced from PHYCO2’s revolutionary and patented concept that promotes algae growth and sequesters, or captures, carbon dioxide from power plant emissions. The collaboration is a direct response to the White House and U.S. EPA’s call documented in the Clean Power Plan. Under the collaborative research agreement, MSU and PHYCO2—an algae growth and carbon dioxide sequestration company based in Santa Maria, California—will investigate the performance of PHYCO2’s algae growth and carbon dioxide absorption technology, as well as algae-processing technologies. PHYCO2 will be testing its algae [...]
