Algae technologies have a unique potential to use the CO2 from fossil fuel power plants as they grow, transforming what is now considered a harmful waste gas into a valuable feedstock for countless products.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Fossil Energy is seeking information from industry, academia, research laboratories, and others to learn about specific beneficial carbon use and reuse technology opportunities for the U.S. power generation sector. The Bioenergy Technologies Office is also interested in employing bioenergy feedstocks as carbon utilization technologies.
To complement existing efforts to develop, demonstrate, and deploy carbon capture technologies, DOE is interested in supporting new and innovative approaches to beneficially utilize CO2 from fossil fuel power plants. These technologies include biological utilization technologies, such as algae cultivation.
