乍看上去

在一个实验系统中,藻类第一去除污染水营养过剩,然后被转换到生物燃料。

项目介绍

纽约和栖息生物的调查城市使用的藻类进入牙买加湾之前从污水处理厂出水去除多余的营养物质。因为从水中藻类去除CO气氛,同时将氧气注入它,使用藻类作为一种天然的方法来重地址营养负荷进行了验证作为一个健全的和可扩展的战略。栖息生物然后检查收割用作生物燃料的藻类的可行性。

Algae from a pilot experiment at the City’s Rockaway wastewater treatment plant and algae from an Algal Turf Scrubber® (ATS™) system were examined for nutrient and carbon content, and the total biomass was estimated for the existing pilots and for the possibility of expanded efforts. This information was used to analyze the potential production of both biomass and bio-fuels. The researchers then analyzed the potential for scaling up the approach and how doing so could affect the relationship between algae and energy if these strategies were implemented at scale.
