Innovationsakademie Biotechnologie

Heute mal ein wenig Off-Topic über meine Teilnahme an der Innovationsakademie Biotechnologie, aber schon im ersten Satz mit einem Aufruf an alle Algenforscher, Phyco-Entrepreneure und Photobioreaktor-Tüftler: Wenn nächstes Jahr die Innovationsakademie Biotechnologie wieder stattfindet – MITMACHEN! (Das ist keine Bitte…!). Ich war dabei und kann nur sagen – klasse! Da hatte ein interdisziplinärer Mob mit ordentlichem Gründungshunger ziemlich viel Spaß dabei, sich mit 200.000 Euro beschenken zu lassen. Aber fangen wir doch vorne an und klären erst mal, was die Innovationsakademie Biotechnologie eigentlich ist. Continue Reading →

Algae can break down cellulose

Grown in a low-CO2 environment, algae are able to break down the cellulose found in plant matter and use the sugars released for energy. Members of Professor Dr. Olaf Kruse’s biological research team at Bielefeld University  have confirmed for the first time that a plant, the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, not only engages in photosynthesis, but also has an alternative source of energy: it can draw it from other plants. This finding could also have a major impact on the future of bioenergy. Continue Reading →
