    • Power Plant Carbon Sequestration via Algae Biodiesel Production

Description

This project constructed an Algae Biodiesel Production Facility at Abbott Power Plant. The facility's purpose is to sequester some of the flue gases produced at the power plant while providing a renewable, carbon-neutral fuel source for transportation. The project involves several student organizations and has research potential. The Student Sustainability Committee provided the project with $13,000 worth of funding in 2008.
