Algae photobioreactor

Algae Photobioreactor

Team 12


Problem statement

Problem Statement

  • Concerned with CO2 released to the atmosphere.

  • CO2 scrubbing equipment is expensive

  • CO2 storage is not economically feasible

  • Current petro based fuels are unsustainable and increasingly expensive

    According to the IPCC, capturing and compressing CO2 would increase the fuel needs of a coal-fired plant with CCS by 25%-40%


Solution

Solution

  • An inexpensive photobioreactor

  • Algae grows while capturing CO2

  • Sunlight does the remainder of the work

  • Biomass is used as an energy source


Clientele

Clientele

  • Power generating companies that burn fossil fuels

  • Chemical plants with CO2 in purge streams

  • Organizations with on-site power generation


Profitability

Profitability

  • Sell or lease photobioreactors to clients

  • Design and install applications to meet specific company needs

  • Algal biomass can be sold or processed into a biofuel


Profitability for end user

Profitability for end user

  • Eliminates the need for costly carbon sequestration processes

  • Carbon tax savings

  • Selling algal biomass for process into biofuel


Alternatives to buyers

Alternatives to buyers

  • Carbon capture

    • Subterranean injection

    • Artificial trees

    • Basalt Storage

  • Biofuel alternatives

    • Cellulosic

    • Ethanol


Qualifications

Qualifications

  • Members with experience in biofuels research
