One of the companies under Algaetech, Sasaran Biofuel Sdn. Bhd. Malaysia, provides project management, technology transfer and technical expertise to develop a solution to minimize and mitigate Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions through the diversion of the CO2 to open algal ponds and enclosed photo-bioreactors as algal propagation technologies to consume CO2 waste stream. The company is presently consulting a listed company from Indonesia to address the technology know-how and implementation of microalgae development from the flue gas of the Group's power plants. Nowadays, one of the aspects that contribute to the air pollution is the emission of flue gases from the factories. So, we provide a system that can reduce the emission of flue gas to the atmosphere and at the same time, cultivate certain strain of algae. With the technology, Algae Integrated Management System (AIMS), it will be for sure a new beginning for way to reduce air pollution. The Utilization of power plant resources for growing selected microalgae at a low energy cost for valuable products and bio-fuels while providing CO2 sequestering. In the same time, it also a low cost algae agriculture. By doing so, it provides all year algae production which can be an income. This residual energy used CO2 produced from power stations and industrial plants to feed the process (CO2 recycling and bio-fixation) in cultivation of algae. This will be a low cost flue gas (CO2) to the developer. In a nutshell, CO2 Sequestration by algae reactors is a potential to reduce greenhouse gas emission by using the CO2 in the stack gases to produce algae.
