Four years after the first optimistic calculations, the experimental cultivation of algae at Wageningen University in the Netherlands appears to be meeting expectations. Production costs have been more than halved, while the profit made on some… Continue reading Algae cultivation making headway at Wageningen
Algae and bacteria are the fastest growing organisms on our planet. A single algae cell can produce over one million daughter cells in one day. Is this fast enough? All algae producers are limited by sustainable biomass accumulation. Growth rates impact both capital and operational costs… Continue reading Does Biostimulation Accelerate Algae Growth?
Santa Fe Community College has been awarded a $50,000, SEED Infrastructure Grant from the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR), for commercial algae photo-bioreactor monitoring. It will fund the purchase of state-of-the-art sensors… Continue reading SFCC receives $50K grant for algae PBR monitoring
[16th, April 2014] The Urban Algae Canopy by ecoLogic Studio combines micro-algal cultures and real time digital cultivation protocols to produce the oxygen equivalent of four hectares of woodland every day. The piece of bio-digital architecture is the first of… Continue reading World’s first Urban Algae Canopy
Success in the lab doesn’t always translate to commercial conditions, but scientists at Michigan State University have invented a technology that increases the odds for algae-based biofuels. Continue reading Helping the Algae Industry Grow: Best Strains, Best Sites
WOODBINE — Pond scum could be in the future for eighth-grader Dylan Cruz.
Cruz was one of 17 Woodbine Elementary School students who toured the Garden State bioEnterprises laboratory this week on Heine Avenue. He learned how a… Continue reading Woodbine students learn about algae growth at laboratory
