GREEN AND CARBON NEGATIVE
- Micro-Algae, unlike bacteria are green and photosynthetic micro-organisms. Instead of consuming oxygen, they release oxygen into the surroundings, thereby creating an oxygenated environment. In this process they absorb CO2. To generate 1 kg of algal biomass, 1.83 kgs of CO2 is absorbed.
- In a typical effluent treatment process, for every 1000 L of effluent treated, anywhere between 200 gms to 500 gms of micro algae are generated. This implies that for a 1.5 MLD plant which is currently being setup in a textile unit in Malegaon, we will be on an average sequestering a good 960 kgs of Carbon dioxide per day. This amounts to sequestering 350 tonnes of Carbon dioxide in the entire year.
