MARG Energy Strategic Partnerships include developing relationships with large CO2 emitting plants, including electric power generation facilities and others. These emitters provide the most abundant and clearly the most constant output emissions beneficial to maximize algae growth.
Coal companies that derive the best CO2 producing effects when converting fuel for electric power generation will once again employ hundreds and thousands of workers across the country.
Natural gas, less toxic to the atmosphere, is fine when burned but uses less fuel, resulting in less CO2 emitted. In this setting, therefore, coal is a better option.
Wood-fired combustion produces just as much CO2 as natural gas and should not be dismissed as a resource when it comes to converting the emissions into useable products.
MARG Energy benefits major industries and emerging markets as viable options to maximize algae growth within the smallest footprint for use in cleaning the air in homes, schools, businesses, and commercial operations. Creating awareness and understanding as to how power generation facilities are a cog in algae production will eventually demonstrate the impact of such a unique partnership across the world.
There are many energy producers right here in Pennsylvania. However, just by using coal companies as an example of a primary energy production source, we would provide enough CO2 emissions to supply the entire United States of America of the oil byproducts needed! If one state can supply the needs of its country with converting all their resources into oil, just imagine how much each state could support oil needs.
Penn State University
The summer of 2014 brought our research project to the doors of Penn State University for answers. What developed was the ability to grow algae in a much different manner than ever before. MARG Energy was aided by Associate Professor of Biology, Dr Sairam, who is also affiliated with Kunj Biotech as one of its founders. Along with initial algae growth parameters expressed, another important finding was discovered. This was to display the contributions that the main ingredient derived from coal ash helped boost algae growth by more than a >2:1 ratio.
MARG Energy focuses its intent to discover new uses for existing and troubling environmental problems.
