EU-backed project produces first algae crops for biofuel
Spain's FCC Aqualia said the first crop of wastewater-derived algae biomass has been harvested by the "All-gas" liquid biofuel project. "This original new approach to bioenergy means that Spain's 40-million population could power 200,000 vehicles every year with a single toilet flush," said project coordinator Frank Rogalla, who is also FCC Aqualia's director of innovation and technology. The project is partly funded by the EU, which put $9.46 million into the venture.
