Algae become a carbon recycler at IU power plant

Monday, March 23, 2009Steve Chaplin

Burning fossil fuels is damaging to the environment, but no one is sure how to alter energy production without a major upset to the economy. It's a predicament for mankind's energy habit, some scientists believe, where a search for remedies lies off the traditional problem-solving path. Fortunately, Richard Wagner is anything but traditional. A former member of Indiana University's Biology Department, he is now director and chief executive officer of Phylein, a company that researches natural oils and biofuels in algal systems. About a year ago Wagner's company began work at the IU Bloomington Central Heating Plant (CHP) using algae to remove carbon dioxide from flue gas releases.
