Kuehnle Agrosystems

PROBLEM    Biofuels that are drop-in replacements for oil often need large tracts of agricultural land.

SOLUTION    Kuehnle AgroSystems built a system to continuously produce algae for biofuels; the system pipes CO2 and wastewater from an industrial facility into the algae tanks to accelerate algae growth and demonstrate CO2 emission reductions.

RESULTS    This is the first global example of algae biomass production at an oil refinery using effluent carbon dioxide.
