Community Algae BioReactor

The Community Algae Bioreactor (mCAB) is a miniature renewable energy processing unit that creates biofuels from algae while cleaning water and reducing CO2 levels. The closed-system mCAB uses plastic tubes lined with nanosand to remove fast-growing, easily-harvested “super algae” with a high and constant oil content from wastewater and then extracts oil from the algae for fuel production.
