UK and India collaborate on algal bioenergy production

A joint collaborative program among organizations in the UK and India is developing algae to clean industrial effluent. The program is focused on understanding the interactions between algae and bacteria, with the aim of promoting algal growth for bioenergy production. The project is in collaboration with Plymouth…

Algae strain adapts to low light

Researchers working on the EnAlgae project at Plymouth Marine Laboratory have made a discovery that some algae strains are better able to make use of the low levels of light found when the algae are cultured on a large scale. Dr. Ruth Airs and co-workers, working with Dr. Carole Llewellyn, discovered…
