  • Project Description

    CO2 utilisation by production of microalgaes, to be concentrated and used as a feedstock for biorefineries for bio-based products (in particular biofuels). Different CO2 sources are tested: direct flue gas from a natural gas heater (Kem-One, vynil product manufacturer), from an iron mill (Arcelor Mittal) and from a waste processing plant (Solamat Merex). These systems are sized at pre-commercial demonstration level.
