NPR Looks At Maryland Startup Looking to Gobble Carbon Dioxide with Algae

What if we could trap greenhouse gases in a way that almost immediately pays for itself? Dozens of Algae Biomass Organization members are developing the technology to do just that.

Check out the story of one Maryland company, HY-TEK Bio, that is using bioreactors to produce algae at a wastewater treatment plant. Once they are ready to go to commercial scale HY-TEK aims to capture carbon dioxide usually released by power plants, landfills and other industrial facilities, and use it to grow algae for use in all sorts of products, such as biofuels, nutritional supplements and food additives.

Check out Jonathan Wilson’s report at the WAMU website.
