Bioprocess modelling toolkit to explore options for algal biorefining

Phytofutures and University College London (UCL) used their ABSIG SPARK Plus award to create a  bioprocess modelling toolkit to explore options for algal biorefining. Phytofutures have devised a microalgal process which upgrades brine waste and converts it into algal biomass. Microalgae thus plays an ecosystems services role in both supporting nutrient recovery and recycling, as...

Algal Biorefinery: routes for energy and nutrient recovery

A 2015 SPARK Plus Award enabled  Anaero Technology to work with the University of Cambridge on "Algal Biorefinery: routes for energy and nutrient recovery." Research into using microalgae for the bioremediation of waste streams, for example those from tertiary waste water treatment, has been gaining momentum in the UK. However, if biomass is not suitable for the food...
