Sapphire Getting Gas from Linde

San Diego algae biofuels developer Sapphire Energy said today it has signed a multi-year agreement with the Linde Group of Munich, Germany, to co-develop a low-cost system for supplying carbon dioxide to commercial-scale, open-pond, algae-to-fuel cultivation systems. Linde, the leading commercial supplier of carbon dioxide in the United States, agreed to deliver carbon dioxide to Sapphire’s commercial demonstration facility near Columbus, NM, and to work with Sapphire to reduce the costs associated with re-purposing manmade carbon dioxide for commercial-scale open pond algae cultivation.

    Interesting. I wonder if that CO2 will arrive by truck, train, or pipeline and where it will originate.
