Can waste water grow algae?

    The state of Utah is providing the city of Logan with $500,000 to begin turning a 460-acre lagoon complex into an algae farm to produce energy. The city was paying at least $250,000 each year to keep algae from growing in its wastewater lagoons and may have had to build a $180 million treatment facility due to the algae problem. The algae farm will take care of this issue.

    Researchers at the University of Georgia Biorefining and Carbon Cycling Program believe that carpet industry wastewater will be great for growing algae as a source for biodiesel production. The carpet industry’s wastewater contains nitrogen, phosphorous, and other nutrients that allow algae to grow.
