The announcement, made this morning at the technology center in Valencia, was attended by Luis Malumbres, Director of Innovation at the Iberdrola subsidiary; Julian Bolinches, Iberdrola delegate in Valencia; Jose Garcia , the director of R&D at AINIA; German Rodriguez, the director of Monitoring, Systems and Processes CDTI; and José Rivillas, Chief of the Division of Control Project of CDTI.

It was accompanied by a demonstration of the new technique the team developed, which is based on the capture of CO2 from polluting smoke through a device designed specifically for this project, and further use of this purified CO2 to feed crops microalgae.

The researchers say the technique they've come up to advance their research with has many applications which already have many applications today, aside from the new microalgae culture system developed during the project.

Because of the technique employed, over the past three tears the team was able to develop cultures reaching purities of up to 95 percent, for which they have been simulated flue gas pilot scale and have studied different methods of capture system selective CO2 capture and CO2 concentration.

These investigations are part of the key studies for the CENIT VIDA project , an initiative of I + D + i led by Iberdrola Engineering in which a consortium of 13 companies and 25 agencies participated in the research.

CENIT VIDA has the support of the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and has been funded by CDTI, is a scientific and technological initiative to create a new concept of Biocity , Self-Sufficient and Sustainable ( BIOCAS ), applying to the urban environment a new culture utilization of natural resources, waste and pollutants.
