The agreements encompass a subscription agreement, and technical and equipment supply agreements. These agreements also discuss conditions for future commercial algae plants, following the successful completion of the pilot plant.
Am 23. Juli 2014 um 23:44 Uhr soll es heißen »lift-off« für eine Reihe von Organismen, die mindestens 12 Monate an der Außenseite der Raumstation ISS verbringen werden. Unter den mehreren hundert Proben von Urbakterien, Algen, Flechten, Moosen und Pilzen finden sich auch zwei Stämme aus der Sammlung frostliebender Algen, die am Institutsteil Bioanalytik und Bioprozesse des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Zelltherapie und Immunologie in Potsdam beheimatet ist.
New Zealand’s lucrative blue-biotech sector has received a boost with the launch of a highly sophisticated, multi-vessel photobioreactor (PBR). The technology has been designed and built by scientists at Cawthron Institute, to enhance the production of valuable products and healthy food ingredients from algae.
The Energy Department announced today $3.5 million for an algae project aimed at accelerating the development of sustainable, affordable algal biofuels. This research project supports the Department’s goal of producing 2,500 gallons of algal biofuel feedstock per acre per year by 2018, an important milestone toward reducing the cost of algal biofuels to cost-competitive levels of 5,000 gallons per acre per year by 2022.
EABA, the European Biomass Association, and the International Algae Congress, organized by DLG BENELUX, announce today that the EABA Global Conference and 8th International Algae Congress (IAC) will be jointly organized. The meeting will be held on 1-3 December 2014 in Florence, Italy.
Libourne, France and Paris, France – Fermentalg, an industrial biotechnology company that specializes in the production of oils and proteins derived from microalgae, and Sofiprotéol, an industrial and finance company in France’s vegetable oil and protein crop industry, have announced the signing of an agreement that marks a new phase in their partnership for the production and sale of Omega-3.
Chemists of Jena University shed light upon mechanisms of viral diseases of marine algae: Together with scientists of the Weizman Institute in Israel the team around Prof. Pohnert has analyzed the complex interaction between the algae Emiliania huxleyi and viruses. In the science magazine ‘The Plant Cell’ the researchers describe how they could clarify the molecular mechanisms of the relationship between the virus and the algae, which crucially influences the food chain of the ocean.
The Basque Institute for Agricultural Research and Development, Neiker-Tecnalia, has confirmed the capacity of Chlamydomonas acidophila microalgae to absorb ammoniacal nitrogen present in the effluent generated in the digestion of organic waste coming from the agri-food sector.
Kluge Köpfe aus ganz Europa bringt das Europäische Forum Alpbach zusammen – in diesem Jahr ist Professorin Dr. Heike Frühwirth der Hochschule Biberach als Expertin zu dieser Tagung eingeladen, die sich als interdisziplinäre Plattform für Wissenschaft, Politik, Wirtschaft und Kultur versteht.
Bedford, MA – Joule announced that the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has favorably reviewed the company’s Microbial Commercial Activity Notice (MCAN) for Joule’s first commercial ethanol-producing catalyst. This clears the catalyst for commercial use at the company’s demonstration plant in Hobbs, New Mexico. Notably, this also marks the first time that EPA has allowed the commercial use of a modified cyanobacterium.
