A Bio-Energy Bag for the Oceans!

NASA’s design calls for using large plastic bags, made of forward-osmosis membranes, and filled with sewage for offshore harvesting of algae for bio-fuel. These plastic bags or enclosures will be made of the same membranes that NASA is currently exploring for recycling dirty water in space missions using forward-osmosis. NASA engineers would like to call it yet another example of using the technology developed for space travel, instead for making the “Spaceship Earth” more sustainable.
