College of Kentucky algal biofuels research striking the ground in China

Plantations International Information The University of Kentucky Establishment for Applied Power Study (CAER) is partnering with Lianhenghui Investment Co. to construct a five-acre algae production center in Zhengzhou, China. The establishment will feature the center's unique photobioreactor innovation for growing algae, which will certainly be made use of for the manufacturing of gases, nutraceuticals, as well as bioplastics. Lianhenggui is also constructing a second, smaller sized center in Zhengzhou, which will certainly use the very same technology to grow algae for the production of nutraceuticals. Microalgae have actually attracted considerable interest in the last few years as a high-yield sustainable feedstock [...]
