Murdoch University Marine Phycology Professor Michael Borowitzka helped establish a pilot plant in Karratha, Western Australia to turn micro-algae into bio-fuel. The combined Government and bio-industry venture considers the viability of growing large quantities of algae for energy and fuel production. “There are still many challenges,” he says. “I don’t expect to be going down to the local petrol station and buying algae fuel in the next 10 years or so. But in the long run, together with all the people working on this, we should find the solutions to the problem.”
