IMET’s executive director and professor Dr. Russell Hill remarked, “Climate change is one of the greatest concerns facing our society today and IMET is happy to be contributing to solutions to carbon dioxide emissions through our microalgal research program.”Researchers are developing technology that can use algae to capture CO2 that powerplants, cement manufacturers, and water treatment plants produce before the CO2 enters the Earth’s atmosphere through industrial and academic collaboration. The goal of the research is to create a CO2 collection device that is both portable and small. The algae can also be used for a range of products, such as animal feed, nutraceuticals, and biofuels.”With the help of our technology, it is possible to install green equipment that captures carbon at a low cost.”
