- Carbon sequestration via large scale algae farming and continuous pumping of the biomass underground
- Algae powered battery. Biophotovoltaics (BPV) is the light-dependent production of external electrical current (extracellular electron transfer, or EET) by photosynthetic microorganisms. The current can be harvested by an anode in a suitable bioelectrochemical system and used to power small electronic devices.
