Turning polluted water into liquid gold

Tuesday, February 03, 2009

When most people stumble across a polluted pond, they would sigh over the fate of our beloved planet and maybe quote some Thoreau. Fortunately, there are some very crafty individuals out there who see a polluted pond and devise a way to both clean up the pond and create a renewable energy source. As part of our Power Trip we go visit an algae company in Washington State where green goo in dirty water is being turned into biofuel.

Want to see the algae start-up in action? Watch the video. For more stories from our Power Trip, click here!
