Algae companies ask EPA to be able to cash in on power plant emissions

Algae companies on the cusp of commercialization say they worry that U.S. EPA may be shutting the door on an opportunity for them to cash in on power plants' carbon emissions. Algae companies need to feed their microorganisms a steady diet of carbon dioxide, but EPA has not formally recognized their technologies in its proposals to stem greenhouse gas emissions from new and existing power plants. The companies worry that without government endorsement, power plants would have little incentive to give away their carbon for reuse.
