Partnership to co-develop CO2 management system for algae fuel production


The Linde Group and Sapphire Energy, Inc., one of the world’s leaders in algae-based crude oil, have entered into a multi-year agreement to co-develop a low-cost system to deliver carbon dioxide (CO2) to commercial-scale, open-pond, algae-to-fuel cultivation systems.

Through a joint press release issued recently, it is understood that Linde will partner with Sapphire Energy to reduce the costs associated with the delivery of anthropogenic CO2 for commercial-scale open pond algae cultivation.

In addition, Linde will supply all of the CO2 to Sapphire`s commercial demonstration facility in Columbus, New Mexico.

“Producing fuel by algae using CO2 from large emitters like power stations and chemical plants is a very promising way of reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” said Dr Aldo Belloni, member of the Executive board of Linde AG.
