Algae Photobioreactors for Carbon Dioxide Removal

Project number: 
Academic year: 
Our project investigates the potential of carbon dioxide removal by algae grown in photobioreactors (PBRs). Using lab-scale batch PBRs and synthetic gas mixture containing 40 - 60% of CO2, we plan to grow algae and measure its growth rate and CO2 uptake. This process could eventually find broad application to remediate CO2 from nearly any point source including direct-air-capture systems. Our project aims to contribute to the mitigation of CO2, produce algae biomass for alternative energy and co-products, and improve sustainability.
