Carbon-eating algae pilot shows promise at Duke Energy plant

Flue gas from Duke Energy’s East Bend plant in Kentucky provides carbon dioxide to feed algae in fuel tanks in a pilot to test carbon reduction technology.
A pilot project at Duke Energy’s East Bend plant in Kentucky is demonstrating how using algae to remove carbon dioxide from coal plant emissions could support commercial manufacturing of biofuels, fertilizer and other products.
The project grows out of an agreement Duke (NYSE:DUK) made in 2010 to test a process developed by the Chinese company ENN to cut carbon emissions with carbon-eating algae.
