On a broader basis, advances in solar technologies, combined with biological advances in genetics and growing techniques of algae, are reducing the costs of electricity and hot water production in converting carbon dioxide from enhanced oil recovery through the growth of algae in bioreactors.
Algae contain algenates, which are carbohydrates that can be fermented into liquid fuels and chemicals.
Production of solid wood products has a long and rich history in Finland.
