Algae Biofuel in Wastewater Treatment – Interactive Web Conference September 13th, 11:00 – 12:30 PM EDT; 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM BST
Algae Biofuel in Wastewater Treatment-Market Potential, Current State of the Art and Future Directions
About 10 years ago, algal biofuel was a hot topic, but not a viable source of renewable energy. Today, that’s changing. The algal biofuel market is undergoing a reinvention. There’s an increasing number of technology start-ups focused on developing this low-cost, sustainable wastewater treatment method that offers a net environmental benefit.
Water utilities like Aqualia and United Utilities are also showing a strong interest. Wastewater provides the necessary nutrients to sustain algal growth and thereby generate biofuels. Similarly, algal species can effectively remove nutrients from wastewater. However, many questions remain about the viability of this wastewater treatment technology and whether it can move beyond a niche application in the energy and resource recovery space.
