    CO2 emissions 'recycled' to grow algae for biofuel

    Test at Arizona Public Service on the feasibility of recycling CO2 emissions from the plant into growing algae for the production of biofuel.

    Note the massive increase in growth rates versus corn and soybeans.

    Once enough algae is grown, it is harvested, and its starches are turned into ethanol, its lipids into biodiesel and its protein into high-grade food for livestock.
