Coalgae® Biomass-rich fuel Microalgae Waste coal

This represents a creative method of pursuing renewable and cleaner energy resources. This microalgae based technology selectively removes mineral contaminants from what would normally be waste coal fines. The resulting Coalgae® is a biomass-rich fuel made from this waste product that can be used as a direct replacement for coal. This novel system thus provides a cleaner and upgraded coal product from a material that would have been discarded as an unusable.
