“Beyond sustainability” is a concept that encourages creativity and innovation in order to generate new resources from wastes, effluents, and emissions. It views pollution as an opportunity rather than a burden on the environment. Wastes, effluents, and emissions could be recovered and transformed into raw material and resources that could take the place of our natural resources. An example of this is the promotion of the growth of algae by absorbing carbon dioxide emissions from stacks of industrial establishments and power plants. Algae can also help to address the issues of water pollution and contamination, as they can flourish on waste water, removing the excess nutrients and absorbing the heavy metals. This chapter discusses the history of algae use; types of algae; algae for fuel; algae as human food; algae as animal feed; algae use in farming; algae in water treatment; and algae for biological fixation.
