Biofuel
March 23, 2017 - Since 2012, a small algal bioreactor has been operating quietly at St Marys Cement plant in Ontario, absorbing small volumes of C02 and other emissions from cement production to grow microalgae. In 2016, the small pilot project graduated to a full demonstration facility that is capable of churning out up to 50 kilograms of dry microalgae each day, offsetting nearly 100 kilograms of C02 emissions daily.
March 20, 2017 - The global algae biofuel market is expected to reach USD 10.73 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Depleting fossil fuel resources as well as rising awareness towards environment protection is expected to be the key factor for driving industry growth.
