Nasty Venice algae to become green energy source

Real green energy for Venice--nuisance algae blooms to be harvested and used to produce electricity. Up to half the electricity needs of the historic city center can be generated by this goop to gold alchemy scheme.

If only every nuisance could be so readily transformed into a resource. Imagine using CO2 to eliminate wrinkles and unsightly cellulite. We'd be using up so much CO2, we'd have to worry about global cooling.

Sounds great in theory, be interesting to see how it works in practice. Many, many loops of red tape to jump through yet I think. Has anything like this been tried elsewhere yet? It's a sort of 'holy grail' of sustainable energy I believe.
