This is no futuristic fiction, however.
The 400-litre bioreactors are the centrepiece of a research project involving scientists from the Climate Change Cluster (C3) at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and the Inner West brewery. Algae housed in the bioreactors capture CO2, a byproduct of the brewing process, and release oxygen.
