Robert Gardner, a professor of bioproducts and biosystems engineering at the University of Minnesota West Central Research and Outreach Center, hopes to capture and recycle the nutrients in runoff water and produce an environmentally friendly microalgae-based biofertilizer. Gardner’s research funded in part by a MnDRIVE Environment seed grant could reduce demand for synthetic fertilizer while […]

Omega-3 enriched milk by microalgae-fed cows could boost food nutrition

New research out of Harper Adams University found that adding microalgae to cow feed could increase the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in milk, which then improves the level of the nutrient in cheese produced from the enhanced liquid. This data could spur microalgae use at the beginning of the food chain. It also could have […]

3D printing from algae bioplastic eliminates waste

Studio Eric Klarenbeek has found a method for turning industrial organic waste products such as potato starch and cocoa husks into biodegradable furniture and home accessories. The studio grows mycelium fungi for use as a coloring and binding agent that holds the bioplastics together once they are printed. Longer term, the company’s goal is to create […]

UNSW student invents renewable form of packaging

A graduating student from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Australia has invented seaweed food packaging, which could eliminate the need for plastic.
