UK Report Gives Guidance for Developing Algal Industry
(Algae Industry Magazine) new “Strategy Research Agenda” report from the UK-based Algal Bioenergy Special Interest Group (AB-SIG) highlights the benefits of cultivating and using both macro and microalgae in a wide range of products. It also identifies some of the research that should be done to understand and manage the potential impacts on the Earth’s environmental ecosystems.
Dr. Michele Stanley from the Scottish Association for Marine Science, and Director of the AB-SIG, said, “There are a great many market opportunities for algal products, particularly in using natural compounds to develop biofuels and bioenergy products, commodity and specialty chemicals such as those used in fertilizers and cosmetics.
“This is an area which has considerable growth potential for the UK — but it’s also important to understand how an increase in algae cultivation will affect both land and water environments and the plants and creatures that currently thrive in them.” READ MORE and MORE (Algal Bioenergy — Special Interest Group) Download Report Download technical appendix
