MBD Energy is an unlisted Australian company which specialises in what it refers to as "Bio Carbon Capture and Storage" technology which aim to commercially convert power station flue gases to algae which in turn yield oil and animal feed.

The major coal company, Anglo American, became a "cornerstone investor"[1] in MBD in 2009 after acquiring more than 20% in the company.[2] Anglo Coal's Global CEO, Seamus French, is a non-executive director of MBD Energy.[1]

MBD Energy has proposed the Loy Yang A Bio Carbon Capture and Storage project located at the Loy Yang A power station. The proposal is for a pilot coal-to-algae project.[1][3]


Board of Directors

  • Robin Batterham, former Rio Tinto executive and Chief Scientist to the Australian government.[4]
