14:20

Arrive Murdoch Algae R & D Centre

Tour also includes visit to SABC (State Agricultural Biotechnology Center) & Separation Science and Metabolomics Laboratory.

 

SABC is the collaborative university Centre for R&D in agricultural and veterinary biotechnology in Western Australia. It provides platform technologies and world class R&D facilities in agricultural biotechnology to researchers from universities, state government and industry. Currently a lot of work on molecular biology and genetic modification is being done and led by Dr Mike Jones, Professor of Plant Sciences and Director of SABC.


The Separation Science and Metabolomics Laboratory are applying modern mass spectrometry techniques to the characterization of conventional and sustainable energy sources and products to help improve production, recoveries and quality.


Commercial refinery production of non petroleum based fuels such as biodiesel requires the characterization of feedstock (such as seed oils, algae and other forms of biomass) to allow for the prediction of fuel quality downstream. The Separation Science and Metabolomics Laboratory is now applying GC and LC-MS to characterise the lipid composition of feedstocks under various growth conditions and environmental perturbation to improve the quality of biofuels.

16:30

Depart back to hotel
