Honda Motor Co. is considering the commercialization of its algae-growing technology, which can be used to absorb carbon and create biofuels, plastics and other products, the Nikkei newspaper has reported.
The carmaker will test mass production of the organic material this fall and build a new facility of about 1,000 square meters (10,760 square feet), according to the newspaper. Honda will use the algae at its own production facilities in Japan and Southeast Asia to offset carbon emissions from the latter half of 2023, the Nikkei said.
