Growth of microalgae under intensive CO2 enrichment by flue gases is an efficient way of the CO2 mitigation. The produced biomass can be a source of valuable chemicals and nutrients; it is the best potential stock for the biofuels production. Various species of marine microalgae were cultivated for the last six years at Seambiotic Ltd pilot farm in the Rutenberg Coal Power Plant. Flue gases, extracted between FGD absorber and stack, were supplied to the...
