Kent BioEnergy Corporation, a provider of state-of-the-art algae-based industrial solutions, has created a South Carolina Division in Charleston. Managing Director Knox Grant will focus on the application of Kent BioEnergy’s microalgae based technologies for the capture and use of CO2 from flue gas generated by power plants. Grant said, “South Carolina has a development strategy to build several new power plants and is heavily dependent on coal. Our approach offers solutions to the anticipated air quality permitting opposition and carbon emissions.” (Source: Business Wire, June 29, 2009)
