An economically viable solution to wastewater treatment may be in the works.

“Potentially it looks like we could, between the savings on chemical, the savings on the sludge, and the sale of the algae, have a process that may pay for itself. In wastewater, that’s unheard of,”, John Bond, Roberts Wisconsin’s Public Works Director.

An algae based solution to treating wastewater is showing great results. Read the full article here:

o, what can we learn from the 10th Algae Biomass Summit, now in session in Phoenix, one of the nascent industry’s hub locations? For those who have attended this major industry mile marker through its tenured history, the news is as diverse as the product offerings now coming to market.

Over the years, since this event first brought the industry together under a shared vision of algae replacing our dependency on fossil fuels, the pivots have come hot and heavy.
