Never miss another interview! Join Devin here: http://bit.ly/joindevin. Dr. Kevin Shurtleff, a tenured professor at Utah Valley University, has developed a prototype of a system that will remove algae from water during an algal bloom and then convert it to energy. While the energy produced cannot financially support the operation, there are reasons governments would pay to remove the algae. Public safety and environmental benefits may justify paying to have the algae removed. Once removed, it can be converted to energy. Kevin is looking for partners to commercialize the idea. Be a hero!
