Ajoint 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 Marine Laboratory.

The UK contingent is represented by Dr. Carole Llewellyn from Swansea University College of Science. She recently hosted a visit from two algal experts from India to see Swansea’s CSAR aquaculture and microalgal facilities, and to meet Welsh Water and Tata Steel representatives.

The Indian visitors, Professor N. Thajudden, a microbiologist and expert in cyanobacteria from Bharathidasan, Thiruchirappali, and Dr. V Sivasubramanian, Director of Phycospectrum Environment Research Centre (PERC), an international company based in Chennai, met with Dr. Llewellyn and Dr. Alla Silkina from the College of Science to discuss future projects under the jointly funded UK-BBSRC and India-DBT program. These discussions included the development of further links, including student exchanges and algal biotechnology industrial placements.
