2 questions – one answer!

Posted by Lindy on February 11, 2009


Where did oil come from? Bacteria used carbon di oxide/photosynthesis to make it. They died taking the oil to the bottom of the sea where it became overlaid with sediments which eventually became rocks with oil trapped beneath.

How do we sequester (trap) carbon dioxide produced by coal fired power stations? Collect the CO2 and pass it through a medium containing bacteria and let them turn it into oil to be used as biodeisal, plastics and other oil based products! This is what MPX Energia, are doing in Brazil with the help of the local university, to see which bacteria will be the most effect in these conditions. It should be on-stream by 2011
