Algal Turf Scrubbing

Algal Turf Scrubbing grows a turf-like algae network over a simple surface beneath a shallow flow of water. Direct benefits are oxygenation and purification of fresh water, and production of biomass for fuel or fertilizer—but indirect benefits include mitigation of pollution from agricultural run-off, improvement of freshwater and coastal habitats, carbon sequestration, and a reduction of fossil fuel dependency.
