"We wondered if we could restore algal growth with its capacity to draw down carbon dioxide and to emit dimethyl sulphide, the precursor of clouds," Lovelock wrote recently.
Some computer modelling indicated that under some atmospheric conditions, five of the mill's emissions -- total reduced sulphur (TRS), total particulate (PM), hydrogen sulphide (H2S), dimethyl sulphide (DMS) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) - would not meet MOE standards.
The TRS compounds include hydrogen sulphide, dimethyl sulphide, methyl mercaptan and dimethyl disulphide.
Five years ago, Graham Jones and his team at Southern Cross University in Lismore, New South Wales, Australia, demonstrated that algae living in coral tissue produce a gas called dimethyl sulphide (DMS).

"Bacteria produce volatile compounds that smell unpleasant, including hydrogen sulphide, methyl mercaptan and dimethyl sulphide. Doctors often measure the levels of these compounds to diagnose the problem.
