A glass of seawater is teeming with life, and a recent expedition revealed more about what ocean water contains. Microscopic creatures in the world’s oceans weigh more than all of the fish in the sea and produce about half of the Earth’s oxygen.
Yet the ecology of marine microbes, which are crucial for everything from Continue reading Invisible helpers of the sea: Marine bacteria boost growth of tiny ocean algae
Chronic lower airway diseases, such as recurrent airway obstruction (RAO) and inflammatory airway disease (IAD), are all too common in horses today. Reducing dust in the diet and environment can benefit these horses, but Purdue University researchers found that omega-3 fatty acid supplementation will reduce signs even further. Continue reading The Impact of algae supplement on Horses with Lower Airway Disease
KSTP TV – For years, Lake Crystal and Loon Lake have been overwhelmed by an algae-bloom problem.

The process of de-icing aircrafts leaves wastewater that contains glycol. Some years ago, Schiphol, in the Netherlands, experimented with algae to break down this type of wastewater in an environmentally friendly manner. Continue reading Study to treat aircrafts’ de-icing wastewater with algae
John O’Renick, in this insightful piece from the Portland (Oregon) Tribune, writes about the problems we create from treating waste streams as garbage to be disposed of instead of assets for energy production. He suggests that, by using integrated biotechnologies to extract energy as efficiently as possible Continue reading John O’Renick: Algae may turn corn waste into biofuels
[EU] EnAlgae, the North West Europe collaboration of 19 partners and 14 observers aiming to reduce CO2 emissions and dependency Continue reading EnAlgae winds down with two legacies
NASA has partnered with a private company to design and build an oxygen production facility for a Martian outpost or colony. The make the oxygen, bacteria and algae would use the nitrogen-rich Martian soil to make the precious oxygen, essential for the Continue reading Algae and bacteria will provide oxygen for astronauts living on Mars
Vegetables are healthy – and popular. For years, the demand has risen in Germany. Most of it is planted and harvested in open fields – only one percent comes from the greenhouse. However cultivation takes up space. Continue reading Future green farming concepts
Scientists from the Marine Sciences Institute (ICM-CSIC) have studied the presence of dinoflagellates belonging to the order Gymnodiniales in the Catalan shores during three years. The study, led by Dr. Albert Reñé, has allowed establishing for the first Continue reading Characterization of the biodiversity of dinoflagellates microalgae from the Catalan Coast
