Students from three Arizona universities will demonstrate their algae research projects at an Innovation Showcase May 1, in Arizona State University’s Sun Devil Fitness Complex, and again during a formal public presentation workshop on “Using Wastewater for Mass Culture of Algae for Food, Feed and Fuel Presentations,” May 2, at Arizona Center for Algae Technology and Innovation (AzCATI), on the Arizona State University Polytechnic campus.

The general public is being invited to tour the labs and the green algae testbed fields at AzCATI from 3-6:30 p.m. during the Innovation Showcase, hosted by the College of Technology and Innovation. Throughout the showcase, Arizona State University, University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University faculty and students will discuss their algae projects and AzCATI representatives will host tours throughout the center.

The multi-university collaboration is made possible by funding and support from the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR).
