Six student scientists were presented with the first Young Algae Researcher Awards today in Denver for their contributions to rumahkayu.info fields of algae biology and engineering on the final day of the 2012 Algae Biomass Summit, the official conference of the Algal Biomass Organization (ABO).

The awards are presented at the world’s largest gathering of algae industry and academic leaders to recognize outstanding research projects by early-career scientists that are finding new ways to use algae to create a range of http://bana-uk.com/levitra-soft-generic renewable fuel and chemical products, remediate polluted water and consume carbon dioxide.

A total of 26 applications and posters were received from U.S. and international students from Canada, Qatar and the Netherlands.

“There were so many highly qualified applications it was hard to make a decision,” said David Levin, of the University of Manitoba. “The future is bright for our industry and our planet with so many young, brilliant and dedicated students.”

The Young Algae Research Awards are presented to winners for research conducted in two subject areas: biology and engineering.

For outstanding research in algae biology awards went to:

1st Prize:  Beth Rasala, University of California San Diego, Development of molecular genetic tools for algae biotechnology.

2nd Prize: Justin Ungerer, National Renewable Energy Lab, Sustained photosynthetic conversion of CO2 to ethylene in Synechocystis 6803.

3rd Prize: Henri Gerken, AzCATI at Arizona State University, Advanced characteristics of Chorella vulgaris cell walls by enzymatic degradation.

For outstanding research in algae engineering awards went to:

1st Prize:  Esteban Hincapie, Colorado State University, Design of a continuous flow algae harvesting devise: Ultrasonic property measurements and finite element analysis.

2nd Prize:  Katerine Napan, Utah State University, Biodiesel production in combination with bioremediation of heavy metals from flue gas using microalgae.

3rd Prize: Alex McCurdy, Utah State University, Biodiesel from algae, yeast, and bacteria: Engine performance and exhaust emissions

The Algae Biomass Summit concluded Thursday afternoon. Information on drawsomethingcheat24.com the event, including a full agenda is available at http://algaebiomasssummit.org.  Ongoing developments can also be monitored via the Twitter hashtag #ABS12. Next year’s Summit will be held in Orlando, Florida.
