Description: There is increasing interest in the exploitation of microalgae as a sustainable feedstock for a variety of products (such as diesel, omega-3 oils, pigments, enzymes) to replace those currently sourced from fossil oil and gas, crop plants and animals.

The University has researchers from many disciplines who work on algae, in departments including Architecture, Biochemistry, Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, Chemistry, Engineering, and Plant Sciences.

The new Algal Innovation Centre at the University of Cambridge will address the requirement for scale-up and pilot facilities to enable translation of fundamental research and showcase technologies.
