Patented microalgae photobioreactor technology for point-source CO₂ capture from untreated flue gases
Microalgae synthesize food directly from atmospheric CO₂ and water using sunlight, are highly adaptive, and are found in all freshwater and saltwater environments. Carbon BioCapture® technology is unique in that industrial gases require no pre-treatment. Fue gas is diverted via a duct from the stack to the PhotoBioReactor array or “Carbon Farm”.
Unlike other microalgae-based technologies, CBC does not use genetically modified strains. Instead, it selects naturally occurring strains and adapts them to maximize the capture of CO₂ SOx and NOx from flue gases. The oxygen resulting from microalgal photosynthesis is continuously released into the atmosphere. The technology works with process water, freshwater, or saltwater.
