Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


Microalgae are a promising source of biofuel, high value chemicals and nutraceuticals but there are major technological challenges which currently limit the extent to which they can be used. This project set out to identify a suitable microalgae strain to use as a feedstock in an integrated microalgae-based waste water treatment system and test its ability to remove phosphate contamination from waste water while producing viable quantities of high value lipids and biochar.
