(wgvu) - Algae grown from sewage could be used to
produce biofuels.
That's the word from a company seeking a 7 million-dollar state
grant to help prove it.
Representatives of Bloomfield Hills-based Sequest are
considering the city of Holland's wastewater and coal plant as a
site for their project.
It would divert carbon dioxide from the power plant and combine
it with treated wastewater to grow algae. The algae would be
converted to biofuels and other uses.
The company says it likes Holland because of the proximity of
the coal and wastewater plants and a planned Michigan State
University research center.
The funding request is now before the Legislature.
