Algae AquaCulture technologies


Algae AquaCulture Technologies


Maude and I just watched a film ("The Need To Grow" from the food revolution network in the USA) about this phenomenally impressive power station in Montana, (the company named above) where they use landfill waste, carbon dioxide, waste wood, water and sunshine to produce: electricity to heat homes, biochar and algae to astonishingly-well improve depleted soils, thereby sequestering carbon and improving the quality of our food because the soil quality is paramount to this.

So solving some of the world's biggest problems....?

That is, if it is allowed the chance to become mainstream. Of course these are not only hugely intelligent and humane people behind this project, but brave and determined in the face of big corporations that are all about fossil fuel and agrochemical use.

  • Hi All, Some of you may have noticed a recent refresh of the website design which hopefully makes things a little clearer and easier to read. We have also recently added a new "Further Reading" page. This contains many links to key reports and articles on Climate Change and Biodiversity loss. This is a great place to start if you want to learn more on these subjects. You can access the new page straight off the menu above - its under the "Find Out More" heading or just click here
  • Simon Hoare, North Dorset's Conservative MP until the dissolution of Parliament, replied to my request for his views on the climate emergency by saying: 'As I don’t know what the questions will be [at the 21 November hustings] I’m obviously not sure what my answers will be.' But he said he was prepared to give the following what he called 'a top line flavour' of his views: 'My main thrust will be: energy efficient building regulations, use of economic instruments to nudge behaviours, positioning 2050 as an end date not a target, and finally supporting initiatives to make our sophisticated lives more sustainable/less impactful.' So that's a full house: all four North Dorset Parliamentary candidates' views on the climate emergency are now on this Forum. Pin 'em down on 21 November!
