    • Microalgal removal of CO2 from flue gas Microalgal removal of CO2 from flue gas Xing Zhang Recorded: Apr 22 2015 11:00 am UTC 39 mins
    • Microalgal removal of CO2 from flue gas
      Various methods have been developed to remove CO2 from the flue gas of coal-fired power plants. Biological post-combustion capture is one of these. Microalgae may be used for bio-fixation of CO2 because of their capacity for photosynthesis and rapid growth. The ability of microalgae to withstand the high concentrations of CO2 in flue gas, as well as the potentially toxic accompanying SOx and NOx has been researched. Microalgal strains that are particularly suitable for this application have been isolated. Most of the research on algal bio-fixation has been concerned with carbon fixation strategies, photobioreactor designs, conversion technology from microalgal biomass to bioenergy, and economic evaluations of microalgal energy. This webinar considers current progress in algal technology and product utilisation, together with an analysis of the advantages and challenges of the technologies. It opens with a brief introduction to the theory of algal bio-fixation and factors that influence its efficiency especially in terms of flue gas characteristics, and then discusses culturing, processing technologies and the applications of bio-fixation by-products. Current algae-based CO2 capture demonstration projects at coal-fired power stations around the world are described.

    • 10 Steps To More Profitable Online Business Networking 10 Steps To More Profitable Online Business Networking Dan McComb - Co-Founder, Biznik - World's #1 Business Networking Site Recorded: Feb 20 2009 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • Business networking sites are a great place to promote your business and build profitable relationships. Here are some simple steps to follow to grow your business using online networks such as such as LinkedIn, Xing and Biznik.

      1. Complete your profile.
      Put some time into fleshing out your profile concisely - it's well worth the effort. Don't leave your profile incomplete, or without photos. Simply adding a photo to your profile will nearly double the number of people who view your profile.

      2. Think like a search engine.
      Networking is, for independent professionals at least, all about putting yourself out there and getting noticed. Not just by people, but also by search engines. When you complete your profile, try to imagine what search terms a potential client would use to find you. Include those terms as prominently as possible on your profile - on Biznik it's your job description field - because that's what gets weighted most heavily by search engines.
