Developing Algae-based Carbon Abatement System

AlgaeCAT aims to develop an innovative, low cost, algae-based carbon abatement system for the the capture of industrial scale CO2 emissions. The £1.2M project, unites a host of major process industry and energy generators from the region, including; Centre for Process Innovation, Sembcorp Utilities UK, Cemex UK, Steetley Dolomite, Tata Steel and Ove Arup & Partners.

Together they will address the shortfalls of algae technologies currently used for carbon abatement, which are heavily reliant on large land area, intensive labour, and warm climates.

AlgaeCAT’s funding, provided by the Technology Strategy Board’s Collaborative Reseach and Development Award, was secured with the help of Enterprise Europe Network North East, an initiative managed by the project’s leaders, The Centre for Process Innovation.
