Montana gives grant to make great green goo from CO2
GreenShift, a bio-fuel producing company, wants to use the CO2 emitted from corn ethanol production plants, along with concentrated sunlight and nutrient-rich water, to help grow massive quantities of a certain type of algae. The created biomass could then be used as a feedstock for different products; most notably, biodiesel. The company already operates a biodiesel plant in Michigan as well as several corn processing facilities. We're not sure if this will sooth the bruises suffered recently by ethanol but it can't hurt. Hit the jump to see the process explained in a short video.
