Carbon fibers, made from algae oil

In collaboration with fellow researchers, chemists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed a process that, according to their initial calculations, can facilitate economically removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by producing carbon fibers. Algae convert carbon dioxide from the atmosphere…

Optimizing algae cultivation with LED lighting

Phys.org reports that, in collaboration with the Berlin, Germany LED manufacturer FutureLED, scientists at the Technische Universität München have developed a unique combination of light and climate simulation to optimize algae cultivation. “Nobody can really predict whether algae from the tropics…
