The project is called CARS, Carbon Algae Recycling System, and it's backed by a consortium of researchers.

Two Row Wampum Treaty

Two Row Wampum Treaty
"It is said that, each nation shall stay in their own vessels, and travel the river side by side. Further, it is said, that neither nation will try to steer the vessel of the other."
