New Project to Aid Seaweed R&D in Developing Nations

An initiative has received funding for research and development to address disease and pest infestations threatening the global seaweed industry, especially in developing countries. The outbreaks are causing dramatic 15 per cent yield declines, particularly in three major seaweed-producing countries of Tanzania, Philippines and Indonesia, resulting in catastrophic socio-economic impacts on communities, according to the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS). […]

Newly Discovered Algal Enzyme Uses Light to Convert Fats into Fuel

Scientists have successfully engineered algae that when starved for nitrogen, put most of their stored energy, into fats. These fats are chemically similar to hydrocarbons and are thus further processed into “biofuel”. However, this processing of fats into biofuel is not a straightforward process. Interestingly, researchers from France also found the solution to the problem from […]

SPACE10’s Algae Dome Produces ‘the supercrop of the future’

IKEA’s external future-living lab — has erected the ‘algae dome’, a four-meter-high pavilion capable of growing what could be ‘the supercrop of the future’. Designed by architects, the food-producing structure houses a photo-bioreactor, a closed system that enables the high productivity of microalgae, microscopic algae that are typically found in freshwater and marine systems. It is imagined that in the future, different […]

Algae – A Natural Alternative to Commercial Sunscreen Products

An estimated 6,000-14,000 tons of sunscreen are deposited into coral reef areas of the sea every year. The chemicals we rub onto our skin might help prevent skin cancer but we’re only just beginning to understand the environmental impact of sunscreen – and the initial assessments are not looking good. But early stage research suggests that nature […]

Nutrient-rich Microalgae set to become cheaper

A green microalgae rich in protein, iron, vitamins and antioxidants is set to become more affordable thanks to a French start-up team. Shown to be effective in fighting malnutrition and preventing cardiovascular disease, spirulina usage has been limited due to its high production cost. However, the Spiris start-up from Université Paris-Saclay claimed to have developed […]
