Forum: Carbon concentration in algae: Reducing CO2 from exhaust gas ($)

Electricity-generating power plant produce CO2, and industrial and household waste water contains inorganic nutrients that can pollute waterways. What if both of these pollutants could be put to good use, for example in a growth medium for biofuel-producing algae? Ghosh and Kirin describe the feasibility of such a scheme, and point to opportunities for improving algal strains to be more photosynthetically efficient and more tolerant to other industrial gases including traces of SOX and NOX.
